The second edition of the Anren Biennale, an event held in the historic Anren Town in Sichuan province, near Chengdu, will address issues central to the future of people by offering observations and analysis by artists from across the world, and discuss possible solutions to these problems.

The event to be held from Oct 12 to Feb 12, 2020, will be themed on A Confrontation of Ideas, sharing artists' thoughts and efforts to deal with the complex realities of the world.

It will be jointly curated by Chinese scholars Lyu Peng and He Guiyan and Siebe Tettero from the Netherlands.
