Liverpool Biennial 2023

Liverpool Biennial is UK’s largest free festival of contemporary visual art.

At Liverpool ONE, Rudy Loewe presents a new large-scale installation based on the artist’s painting ‘February 1970, Trinidad #1’, which depicts Moko jumbie (a stilt walker) and other Carnival mas players (participants who wear masquerade costumes and march in the parade) coming to the aid of the people at a moment of Black Power revolution in Trinidad and Tobago.

Taking place across the city in public spaces, galleries, museums and online, over 14 weeks from 10 June to 17 September 2023, the Biennial commissions artists from the UK and around the world to make and present work in the context of Liverpool. 

Liverpool Biennial 2023 ‘uMoya: The Sacred Return of Lost Things’, curated by Khanyisile Mbongwa, addresses the history and temperament of the city of Liverpool and is a call for ancestral and indigenous forms of knowledge, wisdom and healing. 2023 marks 25 years of Liverpool Biennial presenting international art in the city and region.
