Dear members,

Happy New Year, and welcome to the first IBA Newsletter of 2017!

As we begin our fourth year, we celebrate past successes and look toward the future to bring even more opportunities for members to share and exchange the information that benefits the global biennial community. Among this year’s events will be a conference in Santiago, Chile this spring, as well as IBA’s 4th General Assembly in Yokohama in the fall. A great number of biennials will also open this year and, for the first time, a biennial will be present on all seven continents when the Antarctic Biennale sets sail on March 27! 

Best wishes for the New Year!
