Proof at The Old Grammar School is a significant group exhibition that responds to the venue’s history as a school, and presents new and radical approaches to education, participation, co-creation, storytelling and narrative. 

The exhibition brings together newly commissioned projects and existing artworks, creating an opportunity to look back at what has made Coventry and the surrounding area so innovative in the field of creative education and production. 

Artists exhibiting at The Old Grammar School will present projects along all six of the Biennial’s HYPER-PATHS, creating an exhibition that responds to a wide range of contemporary issues, that imagines radical futures, and that explores our relationships with education through the Biennial’s New Know-How HYPER-PATH.
