The Yerevan Biennal 2020

I am excited to be invited to take part in the Yerevan Biennial

The Yerevan Biennial, curated by Lorenzo Fusi will start this year in the digital space (launching 30th September 2020). All activities and content will be developed online throughout the preparation of the Biennial and culminate with the launch of the physical Biennial in September 2021. During this initial phase, the Yerevan Biennial operates through its website, social media, and other audio-visual platforms. In 2021 the activity will be implemented and moved also into the physical space. The physical exhibition in Yerevan will occupy several locations across the city for the 
duration of 2 months. The title of the Digital Biennial and the Biennial exhibition in Yerevan is The Time Complex. The digital and physical shows are developed simultaneously under the same overarching theme and conceptual umbrella. Both exhibitions include the participation of artists and contributors from all over the world and are characterized by a strong Armenian presence (participants from within Armenia proper and the diaspora).
