September to December 2011

The Encuentro Internacional de Medellin (MDE) is an ongoing project conceived and conducted by the Museo de Antioquia. The aim of the event is to make Medellín a center with permanent presence on the international art scene by promoting the production, dissemination and appropriation of contemporary art practices. The MDE challenges the conventional approach to biennials not only in terms of its periodicity, but also due to its interest in reaching out to internal agents and strengthening the local cultural playing field.

Through MDE, art events will take place throughout the city in the form of conferences, exhibitions, workshops, concerts, talks and another set of activities designed to promote a continuous, open dialogue with art practices conducted both within and outside the academic setting.
