Liverpool Biennial presents Touched, the International 10 exhibition as part of Liverpool Biennial 2010

18 September - 28 November

In a world packed with countless biennials, triennials and the rest, this madcap event in Liverpool remains distinctive and entertaining. The shows are scattered all over the city, often in pretty strange places, but the overall ambition — to introduce British audiences to up-and-coming international artists and trends — is adhered to excellently.

 The International exhibition for Liverpool Biennial this year presents the work of over 60 artists; around half were commissioned to make new work. The exhibition takes place in five art galleries – A Foundation, the Bluecoat, FACT, Open Eye Gallery, Tate Liverpool – and several non-gallery sites as well. The most prominent of these is in Renshaw Street, where there are three further groupings of artworks within the exhibition: paintings not previously exhibited in the UK under the title The Human Stain; installations and actions that re-animate a disused shop with the aim of Re:Thinking Trade; and the final act of Tania Bruguera’s legendary Cátedra Arte de Conducta from Havana, with continuing actions over the ten weeks by twenty Cuban artists reinventing Allan Kaprow’s Happenings.
