The Municipality of Athens, co-organising partner of the Athens Biennale
Today during an event held at the City Hall, the Mayor of Athens, Mr. Yorgos Kaminis, officially announced the partnership of the Municipality of Athens and the Athens Biennial Foundation in co-organising the Athens Biennale. The Athens Biennale will generate cultural production for the Municipality and its citizens; and will continue to initiate an open dialogue on visual arts and culture at large, incorporating practices, actions and discussions around the social issues of the present time.
H.R.H. Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands attended the event as President of the European Cultural Foundation, which recently awarded the Athens Biennale with the ECF Princess Margiet Award for Culture 2015 for its contribution to European culture and the creation of an open, democratic Europe.
