What is GIBCA Extended?
GIBCA Extended is a satellite program that brings together practitioners within the field of contemporary art from all over the Västra Götaland region.
Throughout the entire autumn, the art scene in Västra Götaland gives you the opportunity to enjoy a goldmine of exciting and interesting experiences. In a satellite programme to GIBCA, art galleries, museums, artist collectives and artists have created a panoply of events inspired by the Biennial’s theme. With art as its medium, GIBCA Extended invites you to share thoughts, experiences and challenges relating to how we can meet within—or despite—our different religious or spiritual beliefs.
You can browse the webpage, for a taste of what the art scene in Gothenburg and Västra Götaland has to offer. Remember, all these activities were created by the art platforms themselves, giving you the opportunity for unique art experiences practically every day from 6th of September to 19th of November. Treat yourself to a life-changing and mind-expanding autumn of art—nothing is stopping you!
