BRENT BIENNIAL: COVID-19 UPDATE

4 November 2020

In line with the latest government guidance, indoor installations and exhibitions as part of Brent Biennial will close to the public temporarily from Thursday 5 November. This includes all artworks sited in Brent council and community libraries.

You can still view and engage with many of the Brent Biennial artworks and projects on the streets of the borough and online. Walk or cycle to see Dawn Mellor’s large-scale mural celebrating the life of local hero George Michael in Kingsbury or Pio Abad’s two murals off the Kilburn High Road revealing the unexpected history of the area. You can follow a self-guided audio trail by John Rogers around the streets of Kensal Rise and Kensal Green. Also viewable are Carl Gabriel’s sculptures outside Preston Road Community Library; billboards by Yasmin Nicolas in locations across the borough and Dan Mitchell’s commission THESE DAYS a large-scale text-based work covering the glass facade of Wembley Library housed within the Brent Civic Centre.
