Abstract
The periodic large-scale exhibition can be uncritical or critical, but it is essential to understand, when it is critical, where its critical agency is located. An exhibition of critical artworks is not necessarily the same as an exhibition consisting of works by critical artists, and an exhibition organised by a critical curator does not necessarily consist of critical works or critical artists. Indeed, the critical agency of the critical curator may be antagonistic to the critical artist. As such, this essay considers the location of criticality within the structure of the biennale itself rather than locating critical agency within the critical artist or critical curator.
