Παντού αλλά Τώρα

Central Exhibition of the 4. Biennial of Thessaloniki
Concept and Curatorship: Adelina von Fürstenberg, President of the NGO ART for The World

Opening Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Exhibition from September 19, 2013 through January 31, 2014

EVERYWHERE BUT NOW closely relates the question of space (Everywhere) of different genius loci in the Mediterranean area with the question of time (Now) of creation in our contemporary world. Around the Mediterranean sea several civilizations have contributed to the growth and to the political, economical, artistic and technological development of the area. On the other hand, its borders are observatories of uncertainties and perplexities, of differences between nations, religions, and cultures; they are areas of geographical and historical contrasts between wealth and poverty, political stability and insecurity as well as natural beauty, pollution and human tragedies. EVERYWHERE BUT NOW will be an interactive, powerful and subtle artistic face-to-face, where the public – meeting the artists and their works, exchanging past and present knowledge and experience – will rediscover today's composite realities around the Mediterranean and further more.
