THESSALONIKI.- After ten years and five successful Biennials of international prestige and press coverage, with curators and visual artists from Greece and abroad, with collaborations from various institutions, interventions in public spaces and thousands of visitors, the State Museum of Contemporary Art is already planning the sixth edition of the Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, to take place in September of 2017.

The Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, which was first introduced to the public in June of 2007, is operating under a new structure, with updated goals and an emphasis on a collaborative curatorial team, placing the Home at the core of its concept, as an imagined construction.

In our times, the notions of residence, community and homeland, wherever one feels safe and accepted, has his roots and develops his social and family relations, are no longer a certainty. The Biennial will attempt to trace their imagined construction and fluidity, as a projection and future expectation, through incorporating past experience.

The 6th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art aspires to embrace all contemporary tendencies and trends, to introduce some less or more prominent artists and groups, to utilize the practice of open calls, to spread out in various venues across the city, to cooperate with cultural and educational hubs on a unified program of successive events, to interact with everyday life and to offer outlets for visions and transcendence.
