Between October 8 and November 7, the fourth edition of the Biennial of Young Artists will be held at the Stirbei Palace on Calea Victoriei 107. Under the heading Police the Police, the 2010 edition tests the tension between two notions of concern: surveillance and sousveillance.
The events will gather in Bucharest artists and theoreticians from Germany, France, Austria, UK, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Albania, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, Holland, Belgium, Serbia, Slovenia, Moldova, Hungary, Romania, India and the United States.
The exhibition will explore various forms of art (photography, painting, object, new media), in full agreement with the idea of collaboration between the visual arts and science. The curator of this edition is the historian and art critic, Mica Gherghescu.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on October 8, and will be preceded by the theoretical symposium Catcher in the Eye. On inconvenient creative practices, devices and strategies of sousveillance’. The participants in the symposium are Iara Boubnova (Bulgaria), Adrian Guta (Romania), Le Peuple qui manque – Kantuta Quirós and Aliocha Imhoff (France), Marta Smolinska-Byczuk (Poland) and Jason Waite (USA/UK). The workshop, as well as the portfolio review will be held on October 9.
