About this Event
Join us to for our Opening Party to celebrate the launch of Liverpool Biennial 2023, ‘uMoya: The Sacred Return of Lost Things’, at Invisible Wind Factory with music programmed by Africa Oyé.
We hope you can join us to celebrate the opening of Liverpool Biennial 2023 and anticipate an exciting summer at the UK’s largest free festival of contemporary art.
The 12th edition of Liverpool Biennial ‘uMoya: The Sacred Return of Lost Things’ addresses the history and temperament of the city of Liverpool and is a call for ancestral and indigenous forms of knowledge, wisdom and healing. In the isiZulu language, ‘uMoya’ means spirit, breath, air, climate and wind.
More than 30 international artists and collectives have been invited to engage with ‘uMoya’ as a compass, divine intervention, and thoroughfare. Taking over historic buildings, unexpected spaces and art galleries, a dynamic programme of free exhibitions, performances, screenings, community events, learning activities and fringe events unfolds over 14 weeks, shining a light on the city’s vibrant cultural scene. Liverpool Biennial 2023 is curated by Khanyisile Mbongwa.
