Group Show at The CET Building


The Future is not a mystical place which can only be occupied by science fiction or speculation. It is a space that we have direct control over, a space where our decisions, actions and proposals are actively build. The inaugural Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art is acutely aware of this. Taking The Future as a starting point from which to consider what this historic city might become in the 21st Century and what role contemporary visual art might play in that transformation, art works in the exhibition showcase visions, impressions and responses to many possible futures. 

The festivals central exhibition is housed in the historic Coventry Evening Telegraph Building, now known as The CET Building. After several years of standing empty thr whole building has been converted into a large-scale gallery space which for the 17 days of the biennial houses installatins, paintings, photographs, moving image works and sculpture by artists from around the world.

Alongside major international, prize-winning practioners, this exhibition has focus on emerging practioners, allowing audiences an insight into what the future of contemporary art may or may not look like.
