The Vancouver Biennale introduces its fourth edition, titled “re-IMAGE-n”, launching June 2018, with projects unfolding over the exhibition’s two-year duration. The Biennale invites international artists to respond to the prevailing issues of our time, including the widespread refugee and migrant crisis, a global shift towards nationalism and isolationism, and an intensifying drain on our shared natural resources. Projects will “re-IMAGE-n” (reimagine) a progressive social framework that supports free speech, Reconciliation and the rights of First Nations, LGBTQ rights, artistic freedom, gender, racial and sexual equality, ecological awareness, religious freedom, and the ethics of biotechnology.
The Biennale’s artworks will evolve in freely accessible and often unexpected public locations throughout Vancouver. By bringing diverse audiences together with artists who offer a multiplicity of perspectives, aesthetics, lived realities and cultural histories, the 2018-2020 Vancouver Biennale provides evolving opportunities to re-imagine the agency and impact of art in public space.
