Liverpool Biennial has added five new members to its board of trustees. May Calil, Chris Evans, Jonathan Falkingham, Sandeep Parmar, and Anna Valle join chair Kathleen Soriano and the current trustees, Juan Cruz, Roland Hill, Paul Hyland, Judith Nesbitt, John Shield, and Tony Wilson.

“With their experience and that of our existing trustees, we now have a group of dedicated people with the multiple skills and commitment to steer us through our next phase of development as the UK’s most important international contemporary art commissioning organization and flagship for the city of Liverpool across the world,” Soriano said.
