Enjoy thought provoking art and culture at the Biennale while reveling in your stay at a premium boutique hotel in Mykonos
From Picasso, to Onassis, the island of the winds has always attracted an eclectic mix of all sorts of (interesting) people: High brow politicians, archaeologists, prominent artists, hippies, movie stars and jet setters, have been ever since the 60’s, rubbing shoulders in Mykonos’ quaint whitewashed alleys and breathtaking beaches, paying homage to its outstanding natural beauty, unique architecture, rich historical and cultural heritage and liberating atmosphere.
This enigmatic, transcendental island, is befittingly also the site of one of the world’s most renowned art lovers rendez vous. Held biannually, this year the third Mykonos Biennale is entitled Trans-Allegoria: A festival that celebrates art, tradition and nature, the Mykonos Biennale 2017 raises (and answers) the question of the capacity of art to initiate, introduce and captivate.
For five days the island will be hosting an extensive range of artworks, performances, projects and more. The Biennale commissions leading and emerging artists to produce both temporary and permanent public art, as well as long-term community-based projects. This newly-commissioned and existing art in all forms is presented in diverse locations, including unusual public spaces –windmills, pirate houses, warehouses, schools and churches, as well as the city’s galleries, museums, and cultural venues. The Town Hall, School of Fine Arts and other organizations in Mykonos provide context for the presentation of contemporary art and culture. Much more than a standard art presentation, this event is an earthy festival, a symposium where art and philosophy intersect with the unique energy of the island, with the aim of exposing its attendants to all that art encompasses: That is the transformation of energy into creation, and creation into life; a theme which is aptly suited to this transcendental Island that transforms everyone into something new. After all this is the crux of Mykonos’ magic; and to experience it to the maximum, it’s best to visit now.

Of course as it is with every holiday, where you opt to stay is paramount.
