Liverpool Daily Post – Entertainment – Liverpool Biennial – Biennial News – Lewis Biggs on 10 years at the helm of the Liverpool Biennial.

IF Lewis Biggs was looking for a change of career then plate spinner might not be too unrealistic an option. With five days to go before the opening of the 2010 Liverpool Biennial, final preparations for the UK’s largest festival of contemporary art are in full and manic swing.

Through it all, Lewis remains the quietly-spoken calm in the artistic storm.

The former exhibition officer at the British Council visual arts department, and director of Tate Liverpool from 1990-2000, has now been at the Biennial helm for 10 years.
