This major group exhibition offers a unique opportunity for artists to experiment within the visually and politically loaded setting of a disused NHS facility. Opening up the city and creating opportunities to engage with contemporary art without the pressures of visiting a museum or traditional gallery space is an important aim of the Biennial.

This exhibition includes site-specific responses to the venue’s three different levels across a wide range of scale, subject and approach. Photography and film exploring geo-cultural identities sits alongside paintings and installations that play with the fabric of the building and its histories. New site-responsive sound commissions will collide with plant-based living sculptures and works made with cutting edge virtual reality technologies.

The Row is one of the primary venues for our sister project with New Art West Midlands and International Curators Forum. It showcases work by some of the best and most exciting recently graduated artists from across the region’s six art schools, here placed alongside work by established national and international practitioners.

Artists who will be presenting work at The Row during Coventry Biennial 2019 include:

James Birkin, Simon & Tom Bloor, Betsy Bradley, Sarah Byrne, Natasha Brzezicki, Hira Butt, Lorsen Camps, James Clarkson, Gemma Costin, Paul Crook, Matthew Darbyshire, EVOL, Georgiou & Tolley, Joseph Delappe, Lisa Denyer, Jaqueline Donachie, Dylan Fox, Matt Gale, Zuza Golinska, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Corey Hayman, Bex Ilsley, Andrew Jackson, Jazz Moreton & Isobal Adderley, Ewan Johnston, Juneau Projects, Navi Kaur, Liz Lake, Ollie Ma, Tony McClure, Anne-Mie Melis, Farwa Moledina, Jazz Moreton, Tayyibah Mota, Mousethings, MTAA, Edie Jo Murray, Laura Onions, OUTLINE & Smirna Kulenovi?, Mathew Parkin, Paper Rad, Bharti Parmar, Partisan Social Club, Paul Chan & Badlands Unlimited, Rosie Piercy, Ana Rutter, Richard Scott, Matías Serra Delmar, Shirana Shahbazi, Larissa Shaw, Thomson & Craighead, Leonid Toprover, Georgia Tucker, Chidera Ugada, Mhairi Vari and Lily Wales.
