Liverpool Biennial reveals second chapter with indoor artworks


Lewis’s, Lush Liverpool Spa, the Cotton Exchange and the Central Library are among nine venues set to stage Liverpool Biennal exhibitions and work from next month.

The festival of contemporary art plans to open its second ‘chapter’ to coincide with the expected further easing of Government lockdown restrictions.

The Biennial unveiled a series of public realm works before Easter.

This second chapter - opening from May 19 - also includes works at the Dr Martin Luther King Building on the Royal Albert Dock, Tate Liverpool, FACT, Bluecoat and the Open Eye Gallery.

Meanwhile interim Biennial director Dr Samantha Lackey has now been appointed permanently to the role.

She says: “It’s an honour to accept this appointment and to be part of such a strong and dynamic team here in Liverpool.

“During these past four months as Interim Director, I have witnessed the power of this Biennial’s creative vision, developed by Manuela Moscoso and our artists.

“Together they have created a vital and thought-provoking edition with The Stomach and the Port, addressing some of the big questions of our times and overcoming significant challenges which the pandemic has presented along the way.”

The Liverpool Biennial runs until different dates depending on the venue, from June 6 to September 5.
