Borås Konstmuseum

Borås Art Biennial

Since 2008, the Borås Art Museum has organised the Borås International Sculpture Biennial. It all began with Jim Dine’s sensational sculpture Walking to Borås (Pinocchio); since then, the city’s public art has been enriched with a large variety of temporary or more durable works of art. Many have become part of the city’s public art collection and image, while others give rise to exciting, momentary encounters.

The City of Borås bases its public art initiative on a long-term strategic policy and close collaboration with the business sector. The Borås Art Museum has contemporary art as its mission, and the Biennial expanded from 2021 to include other artistic media. To reflect this, the name of the event changed to the Borås Art Biennial.

Borås Art Biennial 2024 will take place between June 15 to September 15. We look forward to exhibit international contemporary artworks in public spaces throughout the downtown area, and at the Borås Art Museum and the Textile Museum of Sweden.
