As part of ICI’s Curator’s Perspective—an itinerant public discussion series featuring national and international curators—Sally Tallant, Director of the Liverpool Biennial, will speak about her vision for the Biennial. The 2016 edition of the Liverpool Biennial is on view from July 9 to October 16, 2016, and unfolds through the landscape of the city. It is organized as a story narrated in several episodes: fictional worlds sited in galleries, public spaces, unused buildings, and online, which draw from Liverpool’s past, present and future.
For her Curator’s Perspective talk, Sally Tallant will focus on the importance and specificities of international art events in regional capitals, with Liverpool Biennial as a case study. Since 2012, Tallant has transformed Liverpool Biennial by expanding its organizational model to include and prioritize ongoing research, education and production, developing a creative community, and building the city as a place of artistic experimentation.
Organized in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, The New School.
The Curator’s Perspective is a free, itinerant public discussion series featuring U.S. and international curators, and developed as a way for audiences in New York to connect with timely information about a wide variety of international perspectives on contemporary art today. The series sheds light on movements and models that are still in formation or have been overlooked. This year, speakers in the series have included curators based in London, Manila, Paris, and São Paulo addressing questions about art, culture, and the exhibitions in which they are most interested, as well as the artists and the socio-political contexts that are shaping curatorial practice now.
The Curator’s Perspective series has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Hartfield Foundation and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI Access Fund.
