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 crystallizing 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.”
