New Dates for the 7th Athens Biennale “ECLIPSE”

ATHENS — Committed to the realisation of a translocal cultural event, ensuring the participating artists’ presence as well as the local and international audiences’ accessibility to the exhibition, the 7th Athens Biennale ECLIPSE will take place from 24 September to 28 November 2021.

The last year has been relentlessly revealing visions, hues, and textures of a reality which we are unable to capture in its totality. Behind the veil of unrest, uncertainty and flux, glimmers, prophecies and omens still reflect the dynamic of a vigilant era that is calling us.

Designed to reflect the various aspects of the current transformative experience, AB7: ECLIPSE rises to activate our imagination for tomorrow through a cross-cultural discourse on alternative ways of co-existing. Right here, right now.

Presenting more than 80 artists from North and South America, the Caribbean, Africa and Europe, the 7th Athens Biennale examines issues of identity, history and cultural complexity that constantly shapeshift our experience and perspective, rousing interpretations, awakening beliefs, and illuminating potential escapes and parallel worlds.

In the 7th Athens Biennale, contemporary black and queer narratives converse with primitive incantations and myths, astral readings, and radical healing practices, forming a ritual where fear, surprise, humour and irony guide us beyond the moments of absolute darkness.

The 7th Athens Biennale is co-financed by the Hellenic Republic and the European Union through the Regional Operational Programme of “Attica” in the framework of NSRF 2014-2020, performs under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports and is realised in partnership with Onassis Culture. AB7: ECLIPSE is produced by the Athens Biennale.
