GIBCA Extended 2019
September 6–November 17

An autumn full of contemporary art!

In 2019 GIBCA will continue its collaboration with GIBCA Extended, a project where the art scene in Västra Götaland Region joins the international biennial in showcasing interesting contemporary art projects. Visitors from Gothenburg, the region, Sweden or abroad will be welcomed with ten weeks of performances, exhibitions, conversations or film screenings, all on the same topic. GIBCA 2019 marks the 10th edition of the biennial and the 4th edition of GIBCA Extended.

GIBCA 2019 and 2021 are curated by Lisa Rosendahl (b. 1974, Malmö) freelance curator and writer based in Berlin. The curatorial framework will use interconnectedness as a central motif and method. The title of this year´s biennial is Part of the Labyrinth.

The application to participate in GIBCA Extended has been open to all actors working with contemporary art in the region.

What does it entail?

All cultural participants will contribute to GIBCA Extended with contemporary art projects that connect to the biennial’s thematic and take place during the ten weeks of the biennial. The projects are financed and implemented by the initiators.

GIBCA Extended is both a public programme presenting the generous and diverse offer of contemporary art experiences in Västra Götaland region, and an internal collaborative network that aims to highlight the contribution of cultural actors, be it independent or institutional, to the development of the art field and art infrastructure in the region.

The collaboration platform takes shape through information meetings, conferences and workshops days and encourages the knowledge production and exchange between a wide-range of collaborators throughout to the Västra Götaland art scene.
