Tina B, an acronym for “This Is Not Another Biennale,” is a contemporary art festival planned for every two years in the Czech capital of Prague. The inaugural event takes place from May 18–June 27, and organizers hope to draw a whole new breed of visitor to the Golden City: prominent art collectors from abroad, representatives from renowned art galleries and institutions, and high-profile personalities on the international art scene as well as international art journalists.
With around 70 artists participating in sections organized by a field of just nine curators, viewers can expect a clearer and more concentrated presentation of art than with more unwieldy productions. At the same time, the organizers realize the importance of social networking.
