After hearing Ann CT (annctart) has been chosen to participate in the 2nd Biennale of Modern Art, I noticed that not a lot of artists know what the Biennale is or why it is important.
This years Biennale artists were asked to create peace mechanisms, and study why humans lean towards violence. It will take place in Santorini at various venues between July 5th to October 5th of this year.
Curated by Kikos Papadopoulas (founder) and Gregory Frangos, the Biennale’s mission is to promote emerging artists and established artists of all disciplines. Their vision is to “surpass the traditional (and perhaps limiting_ concepts of classicism, modernism, contemporary, and applied arts.” (x)
With the proper support, and understanding - the Biennale is an amazing opportunity to bring together artists, art lovers, critics, and expose artists to an international audience.
Overall, 55 artists will be participating:
Afrodite Papadouli (Greece), Ahmad Ali (Syria), Anas Homsi (Syria), Andrea Chantal Barthélémy (France), Andreas Makariou (Cyprus), Andreas Paraskeva (Cyprus), Andrew Petras (Greece), Ann CT Braunsteiner (New Zealand), Antonius Kho (Bali, Indonesia), Benal Dikmen (Turkey), Cella + Klaus – KNOLL, MFA Team (Honolulu, Usa), Charalampos Demetriou (Cyprus), Charis Paspalis (Cyprus), Christos Diamàntis (Greece), Christos Papageorgiou – IATIS (Greece), Daniel Kukla (Usa), Daniele Bongiovanni (Italy), David Bartholomeo (France), Demetris Makariou (Cyprus), Dimitra Skandali (Greece), Dowa Khaled Hattem (Egypt), Elena Kyrtsi (Greece), Emma Papadopoulos (Greece), Fabrizio Passarella – Retrophuture (Italy), Gulsah Mursaroglu (Turkey), Hans-Joachim Bauer (Germany), Hans Michael Bittner (Austria), Hela Ammar (Tunisia), Helen Vlachou-Tsotsorou (Greece), Immanuel Rodriguez Mazon (Mexico), Ioni Gliati (Greece), Ippokratis Alexiou (Greece), Irini Andritsi – Titania (Greece), Irini Drossou (Greece), Jelena Jovancov (Montenegro), John K.
