TIRANA BIENNALE 2, THE BIGGEST CONTEMPORARY ART EVENT IN ALBANIA AND THE BALKANS
The second edition of the Tirana Biennale, the biggest contemporary art event in Albania and the Balkans, opens on September 12th 2003.
Structured around the theme of the "U-Topos", the Tirana Biennale 2 brings together more than 100 artists and a large number of art professionals from all over the world. Curators, art critics, experts, journalists, and art lovers are offered not only a vibrant show, but also a different contact with a country rich of cultural tradition and breathtaking landscapes. Many of the participating artists have been invited to realize their works in Tirana, engaging with the Albanian context and its multifaceted reality. In addition, a series of public works and artistic interventions on buildings, facades, and in public spaces, will become permanent inscriptions in the city.
Tirana Biennale 2 is the result of the joint efforts of the Tirana Biennale Institute and the Municipality of Tirana, and its Mayor Mr. Edi Rama.
