LIVERPOOL.- Sally Tallant, Director of Liverpool Biennial, has been awarded an OBE for services to the arts in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list announced on Saturday 9 June 2018.

Kathleen Soriano, Chair of Liverpool Biennial, said today: “We are all immensely proud that our Director, Sally Tallant, has been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her dedication and complete commitment to bringing the arts into people’s lives.

Throughout her career she has fought for the rights of everybody, whatever their background or age, to be able to have access to the arts, and to experience the work of the best artists in the world. Liverpool, as a world class cultural city, has had the vision to back the Biennial and allow it to flourish. In our anniversary year, we want to thank Sally and the City of Liverpool for their inspiration and vision, and we look forward to the opening of this year’s Biennial, the 10th edition.”

Sally Tallant was appointed Director of Liverpool Biennial in 2011. From 2001–11 she was Head of Programmes at the Serpentine Gallery, London, where she was responsible for the development and delivery of an integrated programme of exhibitions, architecture, education and public programmes. She has curated exhibitions in a wide range of contexts including the Hayward Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, hospitals, schools as well as public commissions. She is a Board Member of the International Biennial Association and a member of the London Regional Council for Arts Council England.

The 10th edition of Liverpool Biennial, Beautiful world, where are you? running from 14 July – 28 October 2018, invites artists and audiences to reflect on a world in social, political and economic turmoil.

The title for Beautiful world, where are you? derives from a 1788 poem by the German poet Friedrich Schiller, set to music by Austrian composer Franz Schubert in 1819. The years between the composition of Schiller’s poem and Schubert’s song saw great upheaval and profound change in Europe, from the French Revolution to the fall of the Napoleonic Empire. Today, the poem continues to reflect a world gripped by deep uncertainty. It can be seen as a lament but also as an invitation to reconsider our past, advancing a new sense of beauty that can be shared in a more equitable way.

Over 40 artists from 22 countries will present work that responds to the call Beautiful world, where are you? The city of Liverpool provides the setting with its public spaces, galleries, museums and civic buildings. As an additional strand, Worlds within worlds invites audiences to explore the rich histories and stories evoked by objects and artefacts from the city’s civic collections and architecture.
