The Mykonos Biennale is held every odd year at the start of the summer on the Greek island of Mykonos. Originally created by Lydia Venieri the biennale does not consider itself in the standard form but that of a symposium where Art and Philosophy meet to work with the energy of the island.
For one week at the end of June or the beginning of July, the island of Mykonos, hosts an extensive range of artworks, projects, and a program of events. The biennial commissions leading and emerging artists to make and present permanent and temporary public artworks, as well as long-term community-based projects. These newly commissioned and existing artworks and projects are presented in diverse locations, including unusual public spaces including windmills, pirate houses, warehouses, schools and churches, as well as the city’s galleries, museums, and cultural venues. The town hall, School of Fine Arts and the other organizations in Mykonos provide context for the presentation of contemporary art and culture.
