Biennial Foundation

Biennial Foundation

Biennial Foundation is an independent non-profit organization founded in the Netherlands (2009) to create a spirit of solidarity among biennials worldwide, and to facilitate a diversity of platforms for the exchange of information and expertise. 

Biennial Foundation’s work stands as pioneering: over 150 contemporary art biennials currently exist and Biennial Foundation has been the first initiative stimulating a professional connection among them. 

Biennial Foundation’s most important activity is the World Biennial Forum, a recurring gathering of biennial practitioners and appreciators to examine and discuss the foremost topics and concerns within international biennial making and contemporary arts. 

Biennial Foundation serves as an international network rather than as a traditional art institution. Team members are based in different continents, mirroring the foundation’s scope and identity. Biennial Foundation is independent, impartial and not tied to any special interests. It is legally registered in the Netherlands and global in its practices.
