Abstract: A biennial/biennale show is a show that happens every other year. It is most commonly used within the art world to describe large-scale international contemporary art exhibitions. As such the term was popularised by the Venice Biennale, which was first held in 1895. These have become a large sensation in the contemporary world. What began as a large-scale exhibition to showcase current trends has evolved into spaces and events that are reactionary and question the hegemony of the West. In South Asia, the biennial has become a narrative of contemporary politics and the ways in which art can act as a tool of resistance. To keep this piece relevant to contemporary India, I will focus on the case of the Students’ Biennale, so far, a unique event in the art world.
