Coventry Biennial returns to Herbert to present a significant group exhibition of newly commissioned projects and artworks from studios and galleries.
The third Coventry Biennial is named HYPER-POSSIBLE in a reference to the radical nature of Coventry’s history, whilst also signifying a positive way forward following a deeply difficult 2020 and start to 2021.
HYPER-POSSIBLE will unfold over seven exhibition venues across Coventry and Warwickshire, with the major exhibition at Herbert Art Gallery & Museum remaining open until February.
HYPER-POSSIBLE takes three moments from the city’s recent art history as starting points. From these, local, national and international artists have developed artworks that imagine radical futures, enable new forms of knowledge production, reflect on our relationships to the places that we live, explore the social and political impacts of our identities and the impacts that human activity is having on the planet.
The following artists will feature in events across the biennial: Ayo Akingbade, Art & Language, Leilah Babirye, Ryan Christopher, Faye Claridge, Rupi Dhillon, Laura Dicken, Mark Fisher and Justin Barton, Denzil Forrester, Georgiou & Tolley, Russell Haswell, Matthew Krishanu, Helen Kilby Nelson, Grace Ndiritu, Keith Piper, Alan Van Wijgerden, melissandre varin, Duncan Whitley and John Yeadon.
