Organizer Vancouver Biennale

Organizer of Vancouver Biennale 2021 BIKEnnale/WALKennale

The Vancouver Biennale celebrates art in public space. We transform the urban landscape into an Open Air Museum, creating globally inspired cultural experiences where people live, work, play, and transit. Each exhibition becomes a catalyst for community engagement, learning, and social action. The Vancouver Biennale features internationally renowned and emerging contemporary artists that represent a diversity of cultural perspectives and artistic disciplines including sculpture, augmented and virtual reality, performance works, music, and film. As a non-profit charitable organization, the Vancouver Biennale relies on the support of its partners and friends to deliver award-winning programming. Visit www.vancouverbiennale.com for more information.

We acknowledge we are on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We thank them for having cared for this land and look forward to working with them in partnership as we continue to build this great city together.
