V Baltic Biennale 2016

19 September - 2 October 2016

Baltic Biennale is a long-term city project held by the Diaghilev Museum of Modern Art of St. Petersburg State University with the support of the Committee for External Relations of the Government of St. Petersburg and the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences in St. Petersburg State University. The countries - participants: Germany, Denmark, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Russia.

The theme of the Biennale 2016 is "Baltic interconnections". This is a double task project: international exhibition and sociological research which aims to find out how familiar artists of the Baltic region. To create the exhibition we have chosen an artists from one Baltic country and then create a "chain" asking whom of the artists of the Baltic countries they know, keep in contact or even friends. Several of these running "chains" and make the project, which will be tracked interactive connection between the works of different artists. These same "relationships chains" we intend to follow when creating the exhibition, which will be located in the "New Museum". Thus, the exhibition will be an independent object, which can be studied to trace the navigation lines of mutual interest.
