World Selection Of Contemporary Art
Biennale Cuvée, 2010
Biennale Cuvée, Linz
25 February - 14 May, 2009
Curators: Manray Hsu, Martin Sturm
A project for LINZ 2009 EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE
Under the title BIENNALE CUVEE the OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz/Austria presents a selection of artistic projects from the most important international biennials of 2008 with an emphasis on the Asian biennials in the selection. The exhibition offers visitors an insight into the international art world and an opportunity for a condensed experience of contemporary art.
Next to art fairs, today “biennials” are the most important international format for art exhibitions. Especially for cities like Taipei, Singapore, Yokohama or Gwangju, they also provide an opportunity to present themselves to a “western” international audience and to strengthen ties to the geographically remote European art scene.
In addition to an exhibition in the OK itself, various locations and sites in the city of Linz will also be opened to present art projects. Both public and private institutions operate as partners here, making their facilities available and taking part in developing the contents of the project.
