6th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art
30 September 2017 - 14 January 2018
The Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, first inaugurated in 2007, is organised by the Greek State Museum of Contemporary Art and has assumed the responsibility of bringing together Thessaloniki’s various artistic sectors while simultaneously providing a further international voice to Greece’s artistic scene. Although tested by the current social conditions and the downsizing of available financial resources, the 6th Thessaloniki Biennale is to be executed using the Museum’s own resources –its manpower and collaborative relationships– to take full advantage of the region’s existing cultural capital, as well as the wealth of Thessaloniki’s architectural heritage. The core aspiration of the 6th Biennale is to cultivate a model of co-curation, to diffuse contemporary art throughout the city, and to utilise synergies in Greece and abroad.
