OUR MISSION

The International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Cartagena de Indias is an exhibition of contemporary art with international and national artists.

The Biennial is created with the idea of further enhancing Cartagena as a center for the arts by incorporating the visual arts along with the existing presence of music, literature, and film, and other cultural manifestations already emblematic to the city, for the cultural enrichment of the community.

The Biennial will bring together artists from different countries whose works will be exhibited throughout the city of Cartagena and will include painting, sculpture, photography, electronic and audiovisual media, installation and performance. In conjunction with the Biennial there will be a rigorous academic program of forums, discussions, workshops and site visits to local artists’ studios, among others.
