MONTROUGE, FRANCE.- From 26 September to 25 October 2009, emerging European contemporary artists will be showing their work at the Montrouge Fabrique at the invitation of its Mayor, Jean-Loup Metton, for the first stage of the European Biennial of Young Artists (in French : Jeune Création Européenne)…

A travelling exhibition, the European Biennial of Young Artists is a panorama of the innovative art trends in 9 different countries through the work of 90 promising artists taking their first steps on the stage of international commercial and institutional art.

A showcase of emerging contemporary art in Europe

The European Biennial of Young Artists is based on a European network of 8 pilot towns and cities the aim of which is to support the contemporary art produced by ten or so young artists in their countries. In the same way as Europe , the number of partner countries where the European Biennial of Young Artists exhibition will be on show is also growing: for this new edition, the number of partner countries will be increased from 6 to 8:

AUSTRIA: Salzburg
SPAIN: Barcelona / L’Hospitalet de Llobregat
FRANCE: Montrouge
HUNGARY: Pécs, 2010 Capital of Culture
ITALY: Genoa
PORTUGAL: Porto / Amarante
SLOVAKIA: Bratislava

In addition to these 8 partner countries where the Biennial exhibition will be on show, POLAND has been invited to Montrouge as a guest to present its young talents.

Exhibition curators in total harmony with the young artists

In each of these 9 countries, a curator closely involved in the local artistic and cultural scene has been asked to select 10 budding geniuses, just out of art school. These talent scouts are as follows:

AUSTRIA: Dietgard Grimmer, Director of the Salzburg Region Plastic Arts Department

SPAIN: Mario Pasqualotto, Professor, exhibition curator at L’Hospitalet de Llobregat Tecla Sala Cultural Centre

FRANCE: Stéphane Correard, Art critic, journalist and collector; he was the exhibition curator for the 54th edition of the Montrouge Contemporary Art Exhibition in 2009

HUNGARY: Sara Stenczer, Art critic and curator at the Institut Hongrois de Paris (Paris Hungarian Institute)

ITALY: Sandra Solimano, Director of the Villa Croce Contemporary Art Museum in Genoa

LITHUANIA: Goda Gedraityte, Director of the Klaïpeda Culture and Arts Department

POLAND: Beata Nowacka, Curator of the Bunkier Sztuki Contemporary Art Centre

PORTUGAL: Gisela Leal, Professor at the Oporto School of Fine Art

SLOVAKIA : Beata Jablonska, Professor at the Bratislava School of Fine Art

From the hundreds of applications received in each country, these curators have chosen a handful of artists that stand out for the quality and originality of their approach and their strength of expression, in terms of both content and form… the work of a total of 90 artists to be discovered.

The send-off for this contemporary art exhibition before its tour of Europe will take place at the Montrouge Fabrique from 26 September to 25 October 2009.
