The theme for this year’s citywide Biennial - ‘the twin’ - reflects the fact that Coventry is twinned with no fewer than 26 other cities around the world. These include Russia’s Volgograd, with which it’s celebrating 75 years of friendship in 2019.

The works on display in the Herbert exhibition explore themes of collaboration and togetherness while also pondering the difficulties presented by globalisation, political inequality and conflict.

“Coventry has been an international, welcoming and activist city for decades,” says Ryan Hughes, Artistic Director of Coventry Biennial. “We are thrilled to be working with artists, our twin cities and a wide variety of partners to explore what it means to be together in 2019.”
