The Contemporary Art Gallery is pleased to partner with the Vancouver Art Gallery to present a talk by Sally Tallant, Director of Liverpool Biennial, UK, as she visits Vancouver on the occasion of the exhibition Vancouver Special: Ambivalent Pleasures (December 3, 2016 to April 17, 2017). Please join us at CAG for Tallant’s presentation on her current work, followed by questions and a small reception.

Sally Tallant is the Director of Liverpool Biennial, UK. Developing an interdisciplinary approach, Tallant has delivered large-scale exhibitions and commissioned ambitious music and performance programmes, including a new work by Michael Nyman in 2014.

Previously Tallant was Head of Programmes at the Serpentine Gallery, London where she was responsible for the development and delivery of an integrated programme of Exhibitions, Architecture, Education and Public Programmes. She has curated exhibitions in a wide range of contexts including the Hayward Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, Hospitals, Schools as well as public commissions. Additionally, her curated performances, sound events, film programmes and conferences include initiating the Park Nights series in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilions and co-curating the Serpentine Gallery Marathon series with Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Liverpool Biennial is the UK biennial of contemporary art. It takes place across the city of Liverpool in public places, unused buildings and galleries. The Biennial is underpinned by a programme of research, education, residencies and commissions. Founded in 1998, Liverpool Biennial has commissioned 305 new artworks and presented work by over 450 artists from around the world.
