Open Forum at Tate Exchange Drawing inspiration from Kochi Biennale in India, which is well known for artists producing their work on site, Winchester School of Art spent a week building an art biennale in Tate Exchange.
The programme included opportunities to participate with artists to make, curate and install work. Visitors joined a wide variety of workshops to discover what it means to build art ‘events’. A series of daily reflective discussions were held in amongst the working process of building the biennale. This series of talks invited the audience to be part of dialogues with members of the Kochi Biennale and explored aspects of Tate Modern’s collection.
The Gujral Foundation supported Imagined Biennales - an open forum to present and debate ideas for the future of biennales. Also, artist Reena Kallat presented a work inviting the audience to share their views about the relationship between democratic ideals and realities.
2-4.30pm Special Event: Imagined Biennales! 4.30pm Live Broadcast: In dialogue with Anita Dube (2018 Kochi-Muziris Biennale curator)
