For the third time the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art presentsone of the most important regional art events – the QuadrilateralBiennale. Its history began in 2005 with a cultural exchange betweenfour neighbouring countries, the members of the Quadrilateralinitiative – Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, and Italy, with an emphasis onpresenting contemporary art practice, its recent developments, excitingstatements, new forms, and media. Unlike its thematic predecessors,Relativism (2005) and Culture Hero (2007), this year’s QuadrilateralBiennale is for the first time concerned with new media art – the artthat uses digital technologies, which have deeply affected contemporarysociety, as its medium. The Quadrilateral Biennale will examinedifferent angles and intersections emerging from new media in theirrelation to the specific political, economic, and cultural context ofthe participating countries. The curatorial team – Christiane Paul(USA/GER), Nina Czegledy (HU), Peter Tomaž Dobrila (SL), Darko Fritz(HR), and Elena Giulia Rossi (IT) will present 16 works of media anddigital art, one of the most innovative fields of art in its aestheticand technological constellations. On display in the MMSU and at severalother Rijeka venues, the exhibition will be integrated into the urbanspace of Rijeka, which, during the time of the Biennale, will turn thecity into the regional centre of new media art.
