Milan Triennale to host 3rd General Assembly of IBA


The International Biennial Association (IBA) is pleased to announce that its 3rd General Assembly will be held in Milan, Italy, coinciding with the 2016 Milan Triennale. Set to take place in May 2016, the four-day event will focus on biennial discourses, with the main theme of planning, design and the development of a global market. A public conference will be held featuring lectures, panels and round tables, all focusing on the central theme and expanding to include contemporary art, architecture and communication.  

Full details will be released shortly.  

Connect with an IBA Membership
Though the main conference will be open to the public, IBA members receive more advantages during the General Assembly and all year round. During the General Assembly, IBA members are invited to the members-only welcome dinner, the main member conference and other members-only events. Members are able to connect online through the IBA website’s Interactive Space, in which they have the opportunity to network, communicate ideas and work together toward a common goal. Additionally, all IBA members receive a membership card that grants access to all events organized by the IBA as well as free admission to those institutions participating in our free admission program. 

The three member categories include Individual, Institutional and Associate. Individual and Institutional members are able to vote for IBA representatives. All members are encouraged to be active participants of the association. 

Applications are accepted through the IBA website
