For ten weeks every two years the city of Liverpool is transformed into the most amazing living gallery of new art, showcasing the best contemporary artists from around the world.
After attracting the most visitors yet in 2008, Liverpool Biennial 2010 continued emphasis on commissioning the most ambitious and challenging new work offering the largest concentration of contemporary art anywhere in the UK.
The sixth edition of Liverpool Biennial’s International Exhibition is TOUCHED, which will consist of new art that succeeds in affecting the viewing: art the moves us in mind, body, and soul. Consisting of around 50 new projects by leading and emerging international artists. Principally new commissions as well as several key works previously unseen in the UK, Touched will be presented across multiple venues: Tate Liverpool, the Bluecoat, FACT (Foundation for Art & Creative Technology), A Foundation and Open Eye Gallery, with half the exhibition sited in public spaces across the city.
Liverpool Biennial 2010 included: John Moores 25 International Contemporary Painting Prize, Bloomberg New Contemporaries and a series of complementary programmes including Liverpool Biennial’s year round work, such as Richard Wilson’s Turning the Place Over.
