Liverpool Biennial 2018: Beautiful world, where are you?
Beautiful world, where are you? invites artists and audiences to reflect on a world in social, political and economic turmoil. The artistic concept and title for the 10th edition of Liverpool Biennial derives from a 1788 poem by the German poet Friedrich Schiller, later set to music by Austrian composer Franz Schubert in 1819.
The Biennial programme is presented in locations across Liverpool including public spaces and the city’s leading art venues: Bluecoat, FACT, Open Eye Gallery, Tate Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University’s Exhibition Research Lab, National Museums Liverpool, RIBA North, the Liverpool Playhouse, Victoria Gallery & Museum (University of Liverpool), and Blackburne House.Also showing as part of Liverpool Biennial 2018 are the John Moores Painting Prize, Bloomberg New Contemporaries and the Biennial Fringe.
Liverpool Biennial 2018 celebrates 20 years of presenting international art in the city and region. It is also part of Liverpool 2018, a thrilling year-long programme which celebrates the city’s culture and creativity a decade on from European Capital of Culture.
