The 5th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art under the general title "Old Intersections-Make it New III" will take place from June 23, 2015 to September 30, 2015.
The 5th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art includes exhibitions, art events, a performance festival, workshops, symposia, meetings, guided tours and educational programs. This is the third and last part of a program which began back in 2011 focusing mainly on the Mediterranean Sea.
The main exhibition of the 5th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art is entitled "Between the Pessimism of the Intellect and the Optimism of the Will". The title was given by the exhibition's curator Katerina Gregos and is inspired by an aphorism by Antonio Gramsci. The main exhibition will be housed in Pavilion 6 (Thessaloniki International Exhibition and Congress Centre).
Forty-four artists and one artists' collective group from 25 countries all around the world will show their artworks, new and old productions.
Katerina Koskina, former president of the SMCA Board of Administration, art historian-curator, is the General Director of the 5th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art.
