PRAGUE BIENNALE 5, new edition, new venue. OPENING May 19, 2011.

The 5th Prague Biennale is scheduled to take place in a new location, Mikrotechna Praha 4. With this new venue the Prague Biennale reconfirms its nomadic nature, remaining transgressive and ready to change its skin.

Directed by Helena Kontova and Giancarlo Politi and curated by Nicola Trezzi, the 5th Prague Biennale will attempt once more to be a barometer of contemporary art of today by seeking new realities and emerging artists.

The main course of the 5th edition will again be a large section devoted to painting titled “Expanded Painting”, seeking to propose a new season for international painting.

Prague Biennale 5 will present unexpected visions from Canada, India and Scandinavia, original work from Italy and Germany, and extensive sections devoted to the Czech and Slovak Republics.

As from the last edition, the Prague Biennale will also feature PHOTO. The 2nd Prague Biennale of PHOTO will include young and emerging photographers paired internationally with leaders from Central Europe.

The 5th Prague Biennale runs from May 19 until September 11, 2011.
