THE MYKONOS BIENNALE 2015

  • Date:
  • Venue:

The Mykonos Biennale is a cult event that brings together artists from all over the world to create something new, to break the borders of their own art, using the telluric energy and hermetic beauty of this cosmopolitan island.

Mission
This not a Biennale …It is a symposium where Art and Philosophy meet with the extraordinary energy of Mykonos. Our ambition is to create a unique event where personalities are invited to communicate the spirit of humanity. Today’s economic disaster presses the populations into depression, a dead-end of confusion darkness and anonymity. Before finding any solutions we must find ourselves. Living poetically, celebrating human existence, communicating with art and philosophy, walking in this territory of culture, history, and genuine vitality we will manifest ideas, strength, enthusiasm, and optimism to look together for the DESTINATION. Like Baudelaire’s Kythera and Cavafy’s Ithaca, Mykonos is a symbolic island: the transcendental land of the alternative thought. With the Mykonos Biennale, we will create a historical event with momentum where the universal spirit of art, liberated, will regenerate in the eternal spring of life.


Description

The art exhibitions, the installations, and performances of the artists, the musicians, and dance group will spread throughout the monasteries, the museums, the old houses, the ancient island of Delos, the windmills and other monumental buildings, like a treasure map of the old island.
