Liverpool Biennial 1999
24 September - 7 November 1999
Curator: Anthony Bond

TRACE was a thematic exhibition bringing 61 international artists from 24 countries worldwide to realize their work in Liverpool. Liverpool’s geographical location as a port, and its social, economic and political histories in relation to the rest of the world, make it an ideal starting point from which to explore the theme of the trace in contemporary art. Given this context, the exhibition was ideally positioned to investigate the opportunities as well as the dilemmas of international cultural exchange.
