Tate Liverpool
Liverpool, , UK United Kingdom

Liverpool Biennial announces the artists participating in the International 2002, 14 September – 24 November 2002. Over 75% of the artworks in the exhibition, which includes art in public spaces, have been commissioned or completed especially for Liverpool by both established and new artists.

Artists for Liverpool Biennial / International 2002 are Chiho Aoshima, Olaf Breuning, Elizabeth Dadi & Iftikhar Dadi, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Dominique Gonzalez Foerster, Juan Fernando Herrán, Christine Hill, Todd James, Claire Langan, Nikki S Lee, Mark Lewis, LOT-EK, PanOptic, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Barry McGee, Remy Markowitsch & Michael Ming Hong Lin, N.I.C.J.O.B., Tatsurou Bashi, Jorge Pardo, Patricia Piccinini, Chloe Piene, Stephen Powers, Jason Rhoades, Fred Tomaselli, Francesco Vezzoli, Dré Wapenaar, Winter & Hörbelt, and Robert Wogan.

Work is sited in the Bluecoat Gallery, Pleasant Street Board School and Tate Liverpool as well as in the public realm: Derby Square, the foyer of Liverpool Daily Post & Echo Building, Liverpool City Centre Holiday Inn, platforms 7 & 8 and the façade of Liverpool Lime Street Station, and Wolstenholme Square.

The artists entered into a dialogue with Liverpool, using the city as a specific cultural context for the exhibition. International 2002 suggests approaches to the urban environment as a microcosm of the global situation. Some of the issues addressed are spin and the propagation of misinformation; viral contamination; media obsession and celebrity culture; identity manipulation; fantasy; the totally designed environment; privatisation; catastrophe anxiety; hedonism and terrorism.
