    the 4th Thessaloniki Biennale

    Various Venues

    Conveying the complex movement, conquest, persecution, and integration of people, the Fourth Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art is centered on the trope of the Mediterranean itself—a nexus of flux, trade, and conflict linking peoples of different religious and cultural traditions—and installed in historic spaces around the city.
