In 2019 GIBCA will continue its collaboration with GIBCA Extended, a project where the art scene in Västra Götaland Region joins the international biennial in showcasing interesting contemporary art projects.
Meeting Point 2018 will take place on November 26-27, around 60 artists will have the opportunity of presenting their work during brief meetings with the invited guest curators. The aim of Meeting Point is to establish contacts between artists and curators for potential future collaborations and exhibitions.
