The 2nd Athens Biennale 2009 HEAVEN is designed as a multi-faceted contemporary art event, comprising of several exhibitions, actions, music and theatre performances, film screenings, symposia, etc, with the participation of more than 100 international artists. The exhibitions and events of the biennale will unfold along the coastline of Palaio Faliro, at a short distance from the city centre, the public beach called “Eden”, in various buildings and public spaces.

Artistic directors XYZ, have invited an eclectic group of curators to contemplate the subject of Heaven.
Heaven as a wide topic touches upon notions such as lost innocence, nature and ecology, utopias and ideal communities. From this premise, a creative dialogue begins, which will reflect upon the theme itself as well as the methodology surrounding large-scale periodical exhibitions.

Please find more info on "Heaven", as well as images from the exhibition, on the Athens Biennale website.
