It will show international contemporary art of a high quality and become an inspiration for galleries and other participants in the local art scene as well
as show the city of G√∂teborg, to the rest of the world, as a city of creativity. G√∂teborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art has a pedagogic mission in terms of conveying contemporary art to the residents of G√∂teborg and especially to the children and youth of the city.‚Äô
