Harlem Biennale (HB) is a global contemporary arts event in New York (USA) hosted bi-annually all over Harlem to stimulate, youth, education and economic development. Ongoing community programs precede and shape each biennial edition.

Local and international artists, curators, educators and the Harlem community showcase time-based artworks including visual art and photography, film and new media, music, performance, and art in public places.

Creating a bridge between past and future, history and technology, the local and the global, Harlem Biennale encourages networks of collaboration and investment in Harlem and Upper Manhattan.

Harlem Biennale is a 501(c)3 non-profit partner organization of the Fund for the City of New York.
