Liverpool Biennial is the largest festival of contemporary art in the UK, with free exhibitions taking place across the city’s public spaces, galleries, museums and online from March 20 – June 6, 2021. The 11th edition of the Biennial, The Stomach and the Port, looks at the body and ways of connecting with the world.When Tate Liverpool reopens, visitors can see new work by Jamaican-born artist Ebony G. Patterson. Featuring sculptures and an eye-catching wallpaper, Patterson’s work looks back at historical representations of marginalized groups, including Black communities and women. Also on display are works by other prominent feminist artists including LinderJudy Chicago, and Jutta Koether. Linder and Chicago both use confrontational imagery to explore the representation of women and their bodies, as well as critiquing gender roles. Works by Ithell Colquhoun (1906-1988), one of the most important figures in British surrealism, will also be on display.
