Wich parameters does one have to aim to, when conceiving a biennial? Which are the requirements?
Lewis Biggs, the artistic director of the Liverpool Biennial, gives his anwer with Touched, the title of the main show of this edition. Emotions become the main narrative; emotions can attract our attention and emotions do motivate us.
Charles Darwin’s theory takes into account emotions as a common field of evolution between animals and human beings.
Lewis Biggs is no less convinced that emotions are the key to talk to different publics, the key to widen the art discourse and not closing it just into the academic walls.
