Venice Agendas consists of a cycle of meetings and conferences involving curators, art gallery managers, heads of cultural institutions, artists and contemporary art scholars, all of whom participated in the 51st Biennale of Venice.

In collaboration with the Venetian art gallery Nuova Icona, Bas Bleu took part in the organization of the first day of the event NEIGHBOURS IN DIALOGUE: perspectives for an intercultural dialogue in contemporary art between the West, the Middle East and the areas of the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe.


The project aims to create a network for an ongoing dialogue between people, resources and projects from different countries, in particular from the areas of the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Southern Caucasus: a platform to allow the creation of a partnership to organize contemporary art events and initiatives focused on the comparison between different cultures and realities.
