  • [01] Photographers from 23 countries showing their work in Thessaloniki biennale

    ANA-MPA - The PhotoBiennale at the Thessaloniki Museum of Photography, opening on May 9, will bring together 100 Greek and international artists from 23 countries showing 1,000 of their creations.

    This year's show focuses on the last of three thematic sections: Time (shown in 2008) and Place (2010-2011) preceded Logos, which will run until August this year. The exhibition will include discussions, master classes, screenings, concerts and other actions in 20 locations in Thessaloniki, northern Greece's largest city. The venues are all at the port area of the city and include Apothiki A (a former warehouse) and military offices - some of them open to the public for the first time.

    "Our aim is to show the public works and give creators the opportunity to meet each other," Vangelis Ioakimidis, director of the Thessaloniki Photography Museum said during a press conference in Athens earlier in the month.

    The Museum was founded in 1997. It is supervised by the Greek ministry of Culture and is currently the only state-funded museum in Greece dedicated solely to photography.

    The archives it holds cover the period from 1890 to 1980, and include part of the archives of Costas Balafas and Nelly's, while the Museum also serves as a safekeeper of the Greek part of the Frederic Boissonnas collection (1903-1920) that belongs to the ministry of Culture.

    According to Ioakimidis, the 2010-2011 Space exhibition was seen by over 200,000 visitors, in all venues.

    The Museum has already held events in other Greek cities and abroad, in collaboration with both private and public entities and its plans include finding sponsors to help it open shows i the Balkans, Turkey and Israel..

    ANA-MPA is the communications sponsor for the exhibition.
