Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art - "The aim of the association is to organise a representative, international exhibition of contemporary art in Berlin every two years and to attract attention to less established younger artists. The exhibition's original and most important institutional partner is the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, which regularly provides the Berlin Biennale with the use its exhibition spaces . . . . The Berlin Biennial has established itself as an open space that experiments, identifies and critically examines the latest trends in the art world. The innovative character of this "art lab," which tries and tests the greenest shoots in the art world is to be expanded, with the particular aim of giving young artists the opportunity to introduce themselves to broad sections of the public. Although the exhibition has an essentially public character, it also has an inner forum in which event organisers, artists, curators, selected critics, cooperation partners, sponsors and promotors committed to the advancement of this association work at shaping the exhibition and its seismographic interpretation of current cultural and social developments."

Art Cologne - International fair for modern and contemporary art, Cologne - ""Since its founding in 1967, the Cologne International Art Fair has been flagship for all international art fairs, and in terms of its composition and atmosphere, is unique in the world. This status as well as the quality and balance of its range are maintained by an international selection committee. The number of participants, which is restricted to about 250 internationally renowned galleries, guarantees a transparent structure, but at the same time offers a comprehensive overview of the 20th century art scene - from Classical Moderns up to the latest art productions. Apart from the classics the focal points of the range are 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's art."

The Sculpture Biennial Münsterland - "This project, the Sculpture Biennial Münsterland, is intended as a permanent joint presentation which will connect latest tendencies in contemporary art to the characteristics of the region, making the Münsterland more attractive for tourists and for people interested in art. The four segments of the project are planned for 1999 in the district of Coesfeld, 2001 in the district of Steinfurt, 2003 in the district of Warendorf, and 2005 in the district of Borken. The Sculpture Biennial Münsterland must be seen in the context of the Münster sculpture projects of 1977, 1987 and 1997. It covers the decade up to the next Münster project which is likely to be in 2007. The concept behind the Sculpture Biennial Münsterland and its content will be an extension of the Münster approach but at the same time an alternative to it. The focus of the Sculpture Biennial Münsterland is not on urban but rural space. As a cooperative presentation, the individual art projects will not only be linked in terms of content but also organizationally, ensuring full on-site support of each project, and an even distribution of sculptures throughout the Münsterland."

The Venice Biennale organizes the International Art Exhibition, the International Architecture Exhibition, the Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica, and international Festivals of performing arts (Dance, Music, and Theatre). In January 2004, the Biennale Board was renewed . . . . the Biennale intends to reaffirm its uniqueness on the national and international cultural scene, confirming its leadership not only in the event of large exhibitions, but also in creativity of artistic production in all of its sectors throughout the year.

Artissima - The International Fair of Contemporary Art, Turin - "Artissima started up as a modern and contemporary art fair in 1994. The idea of setting up an art fair in Turin originated in the consciousness of the primary role of the city in this field. A decision that has proved successfull over the years and that has brought Artissima to become one element of major attraction in the programme of shows and events promoted by the city in co-operation with museums and art institutions in the month of November. During the past editions Artissima has been focusing its attention on contemporary art, encouraging the participation of renowned international galleries and of young emerging ones. Within the fair Artissima has organized important exhibitions together with public institutions and private collectors as well as workshops and meetings with the most prominent museums directors and institutional italian and foreign representatives. In 1997, thanks to Associazione Artissima, the fair created a fund for the purchase of artworks for the permanent colections of the city museums, GAM and Castello di Rivoli. Artissima, International Contemporary Art Fair in Turin, has got a unique position among the other European art fairs nowadays: a fair exclusively devoted to contemporary art and to the newest and most emerging art trends, with an established international character and a very high quality standard."

LatinArt - Online Journal of Art and Culture - "Globalization is a term increasingly being used in the field of art and cultural studies. We here at LatinArt.com are aware of the apparent contradiction of what an online journal dedicated to a regional or geographically specific discussion might have with this term. We see no contradiction and work towards presenting discussions and images that challenge our notions of place while respecting local narratives and specificities. The Latin American diaspora in the United States and elsewhere is a developing dialogue within this discussion. Our concern is one of balance. Our intent is to present to you, our viewers, the most recent and relevant discussions in a rapidly changing field. Please let us know how we're doing."

Lyon:

Biennale d'art contemporain de Lyon - "Given the current proliferation of artists, this 7th Lyon Biennial will stress the layout of the works and the way the viewer perceives them. We want to call on the best there is in art: its impact as statement, its capacity to surprise and its emphasis on safeguarding the uniqueness of the event against a looming failure to differentiate. To achieve this our choice of works has been guided not by their literal truth or accuracy, but by the expressive means they harness: these are open-ended works that instead of simply representing the world, set out to play a part in inventing it."

Mexico:

Mexico: From Empire to Revolution - "A Web resource that draws upon the collection of the Getty Research Institute and extends the two-part exhibition held at the Institute between October 2000 and May 2001. Reproduced in the digital resource are cabinet cards, cartes-de-visite, albums, postcards and other forms of photography. The Photographers represented are either Mexican or European or North American. The work of some thirty known photographers is shown, alongside that of many others who remain anonymous. Together they provide a chronicle of Mexico from approximately 1857 to 1923, a chronicle explored in the History and Chronology sections of the resource. The terrain across which this history played out may be explored in the Maps section. The animated introduction gives a sampling of the events and lives documented by the photographs included in this Web site, including images of the railways, bridges, roads, buildings and monuments that became the fabric of the country, and portraits of Mexico's leaders and ordinary people, all of whom played a part in the unfolding story."

Arco - International contemporary art fair, Madrid - "In 1982, when Feria de Madrid began to make a name for itself on the national scene, it launched a project - promoted by the then - incipient Spanish contemporary art market, spearheaded by a small group of galleries - which, because of its fresh spirit and markedly cultural slant, became a landmark event and a daring new model for art fairs, one that involved a major investment in effort and imagination. This project, dubbed ARCO, was the first of its kind on the Spanish contemporary art scene, until then largely unknown by the general public. It quickly caught on as a major annual attraction, first nation-wide, and then beyond Spain's borders. . . . . The ARCO FOUNDATION is a not-for-profit organisation, devoted to promoting projects in the public interest, in a variety of ways. The Foundation's principal objectives include: promoting research on artworks and artists, including cataloguing and authentication; sponsoring publications, training, and teaching programmes focused on art trends and techniques, especially those involving modern and contemporary art, and any other programmes related to contemporary art in any of its possible forms; and, particularly, exhibiting its holdings - primarily acquired at the International Contemporary Art Fair (ARCO), although they may proceed from any other source - at museums and other exhibition spaces, in Spain or abroad. Although these have been its main activities until now, its mandate is by no means restricted to them. The Foundation may also hold events and organise conferences; create cultural centres; award prizes; produce its own publications; negotiate agreements and exchanges with other entities, institutions, and centres, from Spain and abroad; and, generally, carry out any other activities that could possibly lead to better attaining its goals."

Sydney:

Biennale of Sydney - International Festival of Contemporary Art, Australia - "The Biennale of Sydney was created in 1973 as an international showcase for contemporary art. Its aim was to develop and present a program that challenged traditional thinking and encouraged new levels of enthusiasm for innovative creative expression. The concept exceeded early expectations and the event proved to be a natural fit with Sydney, reflecting the blend of experiment and enjoyment of innovation and energy that has always been a hallmark of Australia's largest city. From a small start, the Biennale quadrupled in size in less than a decade. The Biennale of Sydney quickly achieved international recognition and today it ranks, with Venice and Sáo Paulo, as one of the three leading international festivals of contemporary art and multimedia. The Biennale of Sydney is widely considered to be the pre-eminent contemporary art event in the Southern Hemisphere."

Turin:

Artissima - The International Fair of Contemporary Art, Turin - "Artissima started up as a modern and contemporary art fair in 1994. The idea of setting up an art fair in Turin originated in the consciousness of the primary role of the city in this field. A decision that has proved successfull over the years and that has brought Artissima to become one element of major attraction in the programme of shows and events promoted by the city in co-operation with museums and art institutions in the month of November. During the past editions Artissima has been focusing its attention on contemporary art, encouraging the participation of renowned international galleries and of young emerging ones. Within the fair Artissima has organized important exhibitions together with public institutions and private collectors as well as workshops and meetings with the most prominent museums directors and institutional italian and foreign representatives. In 1997, thanks to Associazione Artissima, the fair created a fund for the purchase of artworks for the permanent colections of the city museums, GAM and Castello di Rivoli. Artissima, International Contemporary Art Fair in Turin, has got a unique position among the other European art fairs nowadays: a fair exclusively devoted to contemporary art and to the newest and most emerging art trends, with an established international character and a very high quality standard."

Alliance of Artists Communities - "Artists' communities are places that provide temporary time, space, and support to artists for the creation of new work. These creative residencies are generally anywhere from one week to one year. Artists of all kinds - visual artists, writers, designers, composers, filmmakers, choreographers, and scholars - are served by artists' communities. The communities themselves are as diverse as their artists: some are located in isolated rural mountainsides, others in the middle of urban warehouse districts; some provide solitary retreat to artists working alone, and others welcome collaborative teams as well. While many sites exist solely as an artists' community, others are part of larger institutions, such as museums, colleges, municipalities, or national parks . . . . Our membership includes professionally run artists' communities, other nonprofit organizations that support artists in the development of their work, and individuals who believe in the creative process. . . .

Venice:

La Biennale di Venezia - "The Venice Biennale is one of the oldest cultural organizations: it was set up in 1893 and two years later organized the first International Art Exhibition; it then became an autonomous body, and today is an interdisciplinary Foundation concerned with architecture, visual arts, cinema, dance, music, and theatre. The Venice Biennale organizes the International Art Exhibition, the International Architecture Exhibition, the Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica, and international Festivals of performing arts (Dance, Music, and Theatre). In January 2004, the Biennale Board was renewed . . . . the Biennale intends to reaffirm its uniqueness on the national and international cultural scene, confirming its leadership not only in the event of large exhibitions, but also in creativity of artistic production in all of its sectors throughout the year. The Biennale is thus an innovative organization in the field of research and experimentation. It has a pluralistic and dynamic attitude towards the diverse elements of contemporary culture."
