BPL Presents exhibitions and accompanying programs are committed to presenting the work of innovative and diverse local, national and international contemporary artists across media whose work allows us to reframe defining issues of our time and our daily lives. Through exhibitions, site-specific commissions and artworks at Central and other branches, we aim to assert art’s status as a critical field of knowledge that intersects with other disciplines and inspires us to re-imagine and renew our world.
