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
