Summer of Biennials

by Art21June 14, 2017 2:01:40 total runtime

When the weather heats up, the art world follows suit, as cities around the globe prepare and stage colossal exhibitions to showcase the current moment in contemporary art. Biennials give artists the opportunity to speak to a global audience, representing their nations and perspectives while driving conversations on sustainability, ephemerality, corruption, consensus, and more.

Art21 films have captured significant moments of past biennials, documenting artists in conversation about the works that they have chosen and created for the world stage.
