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 will be expanded from 2021 to include other artistic media. To reflect this, the name of the event will be changed to the Borås Art Biennial.
2021 is the 400th anniversary of the City of Borås! To celebrate this, the Borås Art Biennial (formerly the Borås International Sculpture Biennial) will be held this year. The Borås Art Biennial is organised by the Borås Art Museum in close collaboration with the Textile Museum and Borås TME.
The Borås Art Biennial is currently in the planning phase. More information soon!
