4th Athens Biennale Agora, 2013

Outset Greece supported the 4th Athens Biennale AGORA, one of the most renowned large-scale periodic contemporary art events in Greece realized by a nameless and ephemeral group of artists, curators, theorists and practitioners in the creative industries.

Referring to the current economic situation in Greece this years’ starting point is the simple question ‘Now what?’. The discussion around this quandary led to the creation of a collective experiment, a social event, a space for the exchange of ideas and a setting for reflection and critique.

The main venues of the Athens Biennale are the National Bank of Greece, a historical building that formerly housed the Athens Stock Exchange, and CAMP Contemporary Art Meeting Point at the very center of Athens. Besides these physical meeting places, Agora provides a digital platform for exchange by addressing an open call to the creative world via its webpage and facilitates online discourses through #ab4agora.

The 4th Athens Biennale includes more than seventy artists showcasing over one hundred works of contemporary art. Between 29th September and 1st December 2013 the public is invited to take part in a rich program of discussions, workshops, roundtables, speeches, educational programs and guided tours.
