Mediterranea 19 Young Artists Biennale

School of Waters

curated by A Natural Oasis? A Transnational Research Programme

MAY 15 – OCTOBER 31 2021

The Mediterranean Biennale, organised by BJCEM – Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, will present the works of over 70 artists from 21 different countries, hosted for the first time by the Republic of San Marino. The title chosen for the nineteenth edition is School of Waters, imagining the Biennale as a collective platform capable of deconstructing stereotypes derived from the Eurocentric interpretation of the Mediterranean basin. On May 14 2021, the Biennale officially opened in San Marino. During the opening days, the public present had the opportunity to visit the exhibitions, and all the public events have been sold out. The exhibitions are presented in different spaces in the historic center of San Marino. Among the locations, the National Gallery, Prima Torre, and the Ancient Monastery of Santa Chiara, currently the seat of the University of San Marino. The inauguration involved local authorities, the team of international curators and 24 artists among the over 70 selected.
All the exhibitions will be open until October 31 (booking compulsory).
