Liverpool Biennial is the UK biennial of contemporary art. Taking place every two years across the city in public spaces, galleries, museums and online, the Biennial commissions international artists to make and present work in the context of Liverpool. 

Liverpool Biennial 2018 runs from 14 July – 28 October and celebrates 20 years of presenting international art in the city and region. The 10th edition, titled Beautiful world, where are you? invites artists and audiences to reflect on a world in social, political and economic turmoil. 

Liverpool Biennial is underpinned by a programme of research, education, residencies and commissions. Founded in 1998, the Biennial has commissioned over 300 new artworks and presented work by more than 450 artists from around the world.
