Change of date

Press days: October 7th-8th 2010
Official opening day: October 9th 2010

Out of respect for the General Strike, recently scheduled for September 29th 2010 in Spain, Manifesta 8 has decided to postpone its date of Opening from September 29th-30th and October 1st 2010 to:

Press days: October 7th-8th 2010
Official opening day: October 9th 2010

By changing the opening date, we hope to give all our guests the opportunity to be present at the opening weekend of Manifesta 8 in the Region of Murcia, Spain.

Manifesta, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, is a roving, contemporary art event, showcasing the most innovative work by artists and curators from Europe and beyond. Kicking off in Spain on October 9th 2010 and running for a period of 100 days, Manifesta 8 will be taking place in historical buildings, museums, unconventional spaces, archaeological sites and other suggestive settings in the ancient cities of Murcia and Cartagena. Since its first edition 15 years ago, Manifesta has been concerned with the idea of breaking down barriers, crossing borders and building bridges. Incorporating exhibitions, performances, multi-media experiments and broadcasts, Manifesta 8 highlights the very best of creative thought, research and experimentation, involving individual artists and artistic communities from diverse backgrounds from all around the continent, this year with a special focus being placed on the dialogue between Europe and northern Africa.

Manifesta 8 is an initiative of the International Foundation Manifesta in collaboration with the Comunidad Autónoma de la Región de Murcia (CARM) and Murcia Cultural.

The International Foundation Manifesta is supported by the European Commission Culture Program, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands.

Sponsors and Collaborators:
Government of the Autonomous Region of Murcia · City Council Murcia · City Council Cartagena
