Tekst fra triennalens nettside www.triennial.cracow.pl:
«The slogan of this year’s Main Exhibition is Immersed in Images. It draws attention to the richness of the contemporary iconosphere, which is reflected in the works of artists from around the world. They allow the public to immerse themselves in an extraordinary world of sensations and observations, commentaries revealing various aspects of the present, to all transformations and appropriations that make up visual culture. It also refers to the overwhelming power of the image that draws the viewer into an extraordinary world, allowing him/her to experience the new, gets to know a different point of view, looks at reality from a different perspective.
As part of the exhibition, nearly 200 works by artists from all continents will be presented, thanks to which it will be possible to create a great space for intercultural dialogue, which is updated in visual forms and the diversity of aesthetics preferred by artists from all corners of the world. The exhibition will also pose questions about the borderline of the graphic medium, problematizing the relationship between graphics and sculpture, installation, painting or video art».
