David Medalla - founder of London Biennale
Last year, David Medalla designed a “bubble machine” kinetic sculpture for New Museum, New York. He has also been included in several important art exhibitions including the most recent major art show in UK entitled “Migrations” (2012) at the Tate Britain, Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form (1969) curated by Harald Szeemann, Documenta 5 (1972) in Kassel Germany, ‘Flux Attitudes’ exhibition at the New Museum, New York (1993), ‘L’Informe’ curated by Yves-Alain Bois and Rosalind Krauss at the Centre Pompidou, Paris (1996/97), ‘Life/Live’ curated by Hans-Ulrich Obrist at Musee d’ Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (1996/1997), Out of Actions: Between Performance and the Object, 1949-1979 organized by Paul Schimmel at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 2nd Johannesburg Biennale, South Africa curated by Okwui Enwezor (1998) and Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2008).


The London Biennale project was founded in 1998 by David Medalla, a Filipino conceptual artist based in London, who assigns the theme for each year’s biennale. The event aims to challenge and transform the notion of the art world ‘biennale’ as a large state or corporate-sponsored event with artists selected by curators based on their geographical location, citizenship, nationality, race and ethnicity by throwing open borders and encouraging a more intimate and community-based dialogue between the artists and audiences. Over the years, the London Biennale has expanded with simultaneous satellite events taking place in Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Berlin, New York, Boston and Las Vegas.
