Coventry Biennial - a-n The Artists Information Company
For the latest dispatch in our ongoing Scene Report series, artist, curator and founding director of the Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art, Ryan Hughes, offers a snapshot of visual arts activity in the 2021 UK City of Culture.
The inaugural Coventry Biennial takes as its theme ‘the future’ and has as its main venue a relic of the city’s past – the former offices of the Coventry Evening Telegraph. Selina Oakes reports.
This week’s selection from a-n’s busy Events section, featuring exhibitions and events posted by a-n members, includes selections from Coventry, London, Manchester, Plymouth and Kent.
Launching in October, the inaugural 17-day visual art festival will feature over 70 exhibitions and events from UK-based and international artists. Jack Hutchinson finds out more from artist and biennial director Ryan Hughes.
