biac martinique: international biennial of contemporary art

December 18, 2013

Art is always on the verge of new horizons. It has a way of conversing with our mind and even our conscience. But when poetry and art come together, the divinity in place is quite euphoric. The vibrant colors and unique patterns that vividly pierce through our imaginations by African, Caribbean, Asian and Latin American art stampede outside the margins of tradition at BIAC Martinique (International Biennial of Contemporary Art – from 22nd November 2013 to 15th January 2014). Thankfully, an establishment has been created to unite masterpieces inspired by rich cultures in one place.
