Liverpool Biennial – scheduled to run from 10 June to 17 September 2023, and curated by Khanyisile Mbongwa – has announced the theme, participating artists and venues for its 12th edition. Mbongwa is a Cape Town-based curator, artist and sociologist; in 2020, she served as chief curator of the Stellenbosch Triennale.
Titled uMoya: The Sacred Return of Lost Things, the show promises to, in the words of its curator, draw ‘a line from the ongoing Catastrophes caused by colonialism towards an insistence on being truly Alive’, foregrounding ancestral and indigenous systems of knowledge. In isiZulu, ‘uMoya’ denotes ‘spirit, breath, air, climate and wind.’
The exhibition will draw on more than 30 artists and collectives including Albert Ibokwe Khoza, Brook Andrew, Eleng Luluan, Gala Porras-Kim, Julien Creuzet, Nicholas Galanin, Raisa Kabir and Torkwase Dyson, with works spread across the city’s art venues from Bluecoat, FACT Liverpool, Open Eye Gallery to Tate Liverpool and Victoria Gallery & Museum, with further galleries to be announced.
