ONE OF EUROPE’S MOST IMPORTANT CONTEMPORARY ART BIENNIALS, MANIFESTA IS BRINGING CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS TOGETHER FOR THE 10TH TIME.
Launched with the idea of creating a contemporary art platform for the Eastern European countries and first mounted at Rotterdam in 1994, Manifesta is taking place this year June 28 to October 31. Manifesta, which was inspired by the transformation the countries of Eastern Europe underwent between 1989 and 1991, aims this year to showcase the changes that have taken place in art and ociety since the Berlin Wall came down. Without a fixed venue and held in a different country each time, this year’s biennial is at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
You will find a complete list of all participating national and international contemporary artists, among them Vadim Fishkin, Elena Kovylina, Tatzu Nishi and Thomas Hirschhorn, on the festival website, manifesta10.org
