Now in its thirteenth iteration, the Bermuda Biennial is a critical platform for the contemporary art community in Bermuda and continues to showcase the dynamism and creativity of local artists and international artists living on the island. This year’s Bermuda Biennial exhibition, themed What We Share, has been developed with a vibrant public programme.  A series of local and international talks, lectures, and public art initiatives has been designed to further conversations around art and culture that are central to Bermuda’s community of artists, designers, architects, writers, and performers.
