Parallel projects organized by Thessaloniki Biennale September 19, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Arts Events Greece, Arts Exhibitions Greece.

The Thessaloniki Biennale is nearing its close with a series of projects that have been organized for the month’s remaining days.

“Public Screen,” which opened Monday, presents video art by 94 international artists. The works are being shown at Thessaloniki’s airport, the old port, near the Museum of Photography, the Kodra former military camp and other areas in the city center.

The project is curated by Sirago Tsiara and aims at integrating art with public spaces and urban life. This weekend, the State Museum of Contemporary Art, the organizer of the biennale, will offer an international conference on the subject of “Art as Heterotopy.” The biennale’s three curators, Maria Tsantsanoglou, also director of the museum, Catherine David and Jan-Erik Lundstrom, will join specialists from different fields to discuss the biennale’s theoretical concepts. Also scheduled for the weekend is a performance by Leda Papaconstantinou, one of the pioneers of performance art in Greece.
