“Heaven” at the 2nd Athens Biennale

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   The 2nd Athens Biennale under the title “Heaven” will open on 15 June and will last until 4 October 2009. The Athens Biennale (www.athensbiennial.org) functions within an international network of large-scale periodic contemporary art events. It emerged from the intense cultural activity that makes Athens one of the most interesting places for contemporary art, and it aims to be an agent of constant change and innovation, provide a context for creativity and dialogue and constitute a wide platform for the designation and the critical engagement of local artistic production, as well as a forum of discussion and exchange with the international scene. The Biennale presented its first edition, titled Destroy Athens, between 10 September and 2 December 2007. The exhibition, as well as the parallel exhibitions and events, reached 50,000 visitors and was hailed a success by the international Press.  Athens Biennale: International Press  Articles & Interviews &  Conference: “Mapping the European Biennial Network” (June 2008)
