Statement from Larnaca Biennale organizing committee
“We are thrilled to have Yev Kravt with us on this new journey of the third edition of the Larnaca Biennale. Larnaca Biennale shares the same vision for an independent institution, placing Cyprus through the biennale as a contemporary art project on the global cultural map. We welcome new collaborations in Cyprus and abroad, to provide the most engaging, learning and questioning program possible.”
Statement from Yev Kravt
“A new world is crystallising in courageous new perspectives, ideas and movements. New narratives, new viewpoints and new languages take shape along the way. Perhaps it was time. Hungry for social change, we seek out fresh aesthetics and alternative proposals. Let’s reimagine today’s world together, highlighting developments at the forefront of artistic practice. Let’s regain strength in a time of uncertainty, using art as an agent of meaningful change. Let’s share our visions with an open mind – guided by curiosity and solidarity. I would like to thank the entire team of the Larnaca Biennale for their brave, bold choice.”
