The result is artworks that resonate with the town and its socio-economic and cultural history, as well as exploring universal issues. Some commissions will rejuvenate existing sites, others will create new environments in the town, involve the collaboration of local communities, and address aspects of daily life affecting people on a global scale, such as climate change, environment, sustainability, technology and communication.
Lewis Biggs, Curator of Folkestone Triennial, said: Im very proud to be Curator for an exhibition that is fast becoming a focus of interest around the world. The Folkestone Triennial presents a very special opportunity for artists who have already achieved a certain status, and want the new challenge of showing outside the gallery, museum or sale room. I have been careful to invite only artists whose practice fits this opportunity; who want to be in dialogue with the urban context, who have something to say about contemporary life in a wider world and who want their work to be enjoyed by a broader audience.
