Pontevedra Art Biennial 2008

Without borders: Hispanic - Maghreb Artistic Convergences. 17 July - 7 Sept. 2008, Pontevedra, Spain.
May 2008

As a continuation of the ideas endeavoured to propitiate interterritorial dialogue, overcoming localist visions, which have defined the Pontevedra Art Biennial's format in recent times, this year's edition is dedicated to North Africa (particularly Morocco, Algeria and Tunesia) based on the historical links which exist between the Iberian Peninsula, and the Central Maghreb.

29 artists have been selected by the curator, Abdelkrim Ouazzan from Morocco, and his three advisors: Mohammed Djehiche for Algeria, Xosé Lens for Spain and Rachida Triki for Tunisia.
