Barbara Moore, CEO of the Biennale of Sydney, has been appointed as a new Executive Board Member for the International Biennial Association (IBA). 

Samantha Lackey (Director of Liverpool Biennial) has also been appointed as Executive Board. Both Barbara and Samantha have a wealth of knowledge of IBA as they have served multiple years as Board Members.  

Long serving Vice Presidents, Bige Örer and Gabriele Horn, announced that they would step down from their positions on Executive Board. Both have been inspiring figures in their biennials as well as the IBA organisation which they have contributed to shaping as founding members. We acknowledge their vision, passion and invaluable insights which made IBA what it is today. While Bige Örer has decided to step down from all her IBA roles Gabriele Horn will remain as a Board Member for the time being. 

Barbara’s commitment will open a great new chapter in the association’s history and will bring novel ideas and energy to the association.
