Date: October 1, 2017 till January 10, 2018
Location: Anren, Chengdu, China
Anren Biennale aims to create a meeting point in West-South China in the field of visual arts between artists of diverse cultures and generations, creating an international professional network for the exchange of ideas. Under the title of “Today’s Yesterday”, the Anren Biennale brings together four exhibition projects from Chinese and international curators.
Today’s Yesterday aims to be a strongly reflective topic about the question of what present actually means? What is the Art of Today? The biennale wants to inquire, how the art of the contingent present may be historicized, how it becomes a geopolitical legacy, questioning the historical narrative of international art.
The Biennale also hopes to make a contribution to the “sustainable cultural landscape” of Anren, Chengdu.
The 1st Anren Biennale will also include a series of parallel events in different venues in order to foster the relationship between the biennale and the local community.
