Tate Liverpool Research Forum
Biennial Culture: Art as ‘Reverse Colonialism’
Friday 3rd November 2006 2pm-5pm
Chair: Steven Gartside, Research Fellow, MIRIAD, Manchester Metropolitan University
Biennial Culture is often identified through its potential in opening-up possibilities within the art world, a widening of horizons, and an unprecedented level of cultural diversity in location, source material and artists. It is perhaps appropriate to ask to what extent this actually happens…
Taking the Liverpool 2006 Biennial as a starting point, the forum will discuss the position of biennials in the global politics of art.
