Biennial of Painting aims to evaluate Croatian painting scene as well position it within an European and global context. Each edition of the Biennial of Painting will present the most interesting occurrences on the Croatian painting scene and give a framework for its theoretical reflection and reevaluation. Apart from presenting what is new in Croatian painting today, each edition will present relevant tendencies in painting in particular cities, regions and countries. According to the adopted organizational model, Biennial of Painting consists of two parts; of national selection and selection of artists from the foreign city.
In 2011 the exhibition I am a Berliner, curated by Mark Gisbourne, presented to the Croatian public recent contemporary art scene in Berlin; in 2013, cooperation continued with Austria and the exhibition Vienna calling which was curated by Theresia Hauenfels.
The 2015 Biennale of Painting will host Polish exhibition – Exporting Gdańsk through which the curator Katarzyna Kosmala will present works of up to 20 artists who are currently active in Gdańsk. Through the assistance of curator Kosmala, the collaboration was established with the National Museum of Gdańsk. Agreement was reached on the international exchange – after the end of the Biennale in Zagreb, the exhibition of selection of the Croatian and Polish artists Exporting Zagreb will be featured in the National Museum Gdańsk in Abbot Palace in 2016.
