Bonavista Biennale

Bonavista Biennale is a month-long contemporary visual art exhibition taking place every two years from mid-August to mid-September within the communities and environment of the Bonavista Peninsula. Biennale curators invite Newfoundland, Aboriginal, and other Canadian artists to interpret current artistic issues that resonate within the Bonavista context and exhibition theme. Artworks range from traditional painting, sculpture, and photography, to video and new forms of digital media that incorporate sound, interactive technology and site-specific installations. A variety of venues distributed over a 100km stretch of the Peninsula include historic houses, community halls, an old school, fishing stage, inns, an industrial site, meadows and beaches. A map/brochure guides visitors from one site to the next. In partnership with local resources, the Biennale will offer collateral cultural and educational programming that deepens viewers’ experience of the artworks with offerings such as: on site performances, interpretive hikes, studio and ‘shed’ tours, youth seminars and art workshops.
