As the only art biennial in the world the X-Border Art Biennial will be arranged in three different countries, using exhibition spaces in Lulea, Sweden; Rovaniemi, Finland and Severomorsk, Russia.

The X-Border Art Biennial is a cooperation between University of Lapland, Rovaniemi, Finland; The center of socio-cultural technologies of Municipal formation of the closed administrative territorial formation of the town of Severomorsk, Russia and Luleå Art Biennial / Kilen Art Group, Luleå, Sweden.

We want to let the world’s artists explore and illuminate the issues of borders, identity, cultural diversity and knowledge in an era of globalization. Severomorsk is now a closed town, which only allows its 50 000 inhabitants to cross the city boundary. In 1993 it was for the first time possible to see Severomorsk on the official map. We are in a time when boundaries have new meanings. How does it affect us? Where are we headed?

Under the thematic umbrella Crossing the border, X-Border Art Biennial, on display from June 19 - October 06, 2013.
