Experience the arts at Coventry Biennial

Coventry Editorial 18th Sep, 2023   0

A FOUR-MONTH celebration of art will be heading to Coventry next month featuring works from global artists as well as local makers.

The works of 15 renowned artists and groups will be exhibited across Warwickshire at the fourth Coventry Biennial.

It will run from October 6 until January 14 and will feature artworks, sculptures and a host of free events and creative workshops.

This year’s exhibition explores humanity’s relationship to the natural world and will take place at Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, The Old Grammar School and the new Delia Derbyshire building at Coventry University.

Other activities include creative writing workshops, a film screening by a Turner Prize-nominated artist, and tours of Coventry’s waterways and nature trails.

The exhibition’s title, ‘Like a shortcut through the brambles’, is inspired by the work of Coventry poet Antony Owen.

Ryan Hughes, Artistic Director and CEO of Coventry Biennial said: “It takes several years to develop each of our Biennial programmes, and this moment, where we can share the work that we’ve been doing with artists, curators and galleries from the region, across the UK and from around the world is always really exciting.

“Included in this year’s Biennial are many opportunities for getting involved in making art, trying new creative activities and exploring the city and surrounding area.”
