Welcome to Borås Art Biennial 2024!

It is with pride that Borås Art Museum presents the international art biennial Borås Art Biennial for the eighth time – this year with the title Layers, Loops, Lines and an exploration of time, space, and place. Between June 15 and September 15, visitors can experience magnificent and thought-provoking contemporary art inside Borås Art Museum and throughout the city's public spaces.

With seven successful editions, Borås Art Biennial (BAB) has attracted great interest and put the city of Borås on the international art map. Many works have become part of the city's public art collection and profile, while others create temporary exciting encounters.

During BAB 2024, visitors are invited to take part of amazing artworks in a variety of expressions and techniques – ranging from installations with video, light, and sound to mural paintings, textile works, and sculptures. Everyone is welcome to the art celebration – artworks in public spaces can be viewed at any time of the day and Borås Art Museum always has free admission. During the biennial, free guided tours are offered every Saturday and Sunday.

Fifteen participating artists have in various ways delved into the biennial's theme, which unsettle our current world and open up for alternative, parallel, or fictional worlds – where the cosmological as well as the scientific and enigmatic can find space.

This year's biennial is curated by Caroline Gustafsson and Daniel Ricardo Terres, and the artistic director is museum director Eva Eriksdotter.
