Thessaloniki Biennale

I came across this in the Guardian.

"As Athens braced itself to host the Champions League final between Liverpool and AC Milan last month, Greece's second city was staging its own, alternative, cultural encounters. The Thessaloniki international book fair in northern Greece is thriving in its fourth year, while the fledgling Thessaloniki biennale of contemporary art, which followed on its heels and continues until the end of September, is billed as the country's first international biennale. Both events stress the city's pivotal location, as a Balkan capital and an eastern Mediterranean hub linking three continents."
