September 3: Co-organized by the Shanghai Project and International Biennial Association, in collaboration with the Power Station of Art, the Shanghai Project international conference, entitled Biennials in Transformation: Hybridization as New Challenge, offers a day-long seminar with internationally known and respected scholars and biennial experts.

The conference will focus on the biennial format and its multi-layer discourse in the 21st century, examining the limits within cultural specializations and seeking to discover whether this affects the biennial format’s ability to be applied beyond cultural fields. It will also consider what the recent multidisciplinary turn in biennials means for the future of the traditional format.
