Creative Foundation announces Lewis Biggs as curator of the 2014 Folkestone Triennial
CREATIVE Foundation chief executive Alastair Upton has this afternoon announced the appointment of Lewis Biggs as the curator for the third Folkestone Triennial in 2014.
Mr Biggs stepped down as chief executive and artistic director of Liverpool Biennial last July after ten years in the role.
During his time on by the Mersey the ten-week biennial festival became one of the best-attended arts events in the country. The 2010 festival attracted nearly one million visits by more than 500,000 visitors.
Currently a visiting professor in contemporary art at Liverpool John Moores and Shanghai Universities, Mr Biggs is a curator for the 2013 Aichi Triennale in Nagoya, Japan.
