Coventry Biennial will return in 2019.

Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art brings critically engaged, high quality contemporary visual art to the city and surrounding area. Celebrating and promoting contemporary art and artists, the festival is equally rooted to the city of Coventry, its history and its future.

The second Coventry Biennial will run from 4 October to 24 November 2019 across the city.


November 6th, 2018


From 14-17 November we bring together a group of artists based in or with deep connections to rural Warwickshire to reflect upon, and respond to, the impact Conceptual Art has had since Art & Language formed and based their collective practice in the county in the late 60s and 70s.

Join us at our Potluck Breakfast on Wednesday 14th or Open Studio at The Glasshouse, Jephson Gardens in Leamington on Thursday 15th to find out more. On Saturday 17 November, we also hold a seminar and workshop exploring the role critical thinking has played in artistic practices which take place away from cities.
