An art event known as the 1st Mediations Biennial is being held in the western city of Poznań through Oct. 30, encompassing 16 exhibitions held at some major venues in the city and featuring 200 artists from across the globe, including countries such as the United States, South Korea and China.

The event includes three major exhibitions. These are Voyage Sentimental, mounted by Hungarian curator Lóránd Hegyi, who is the director of Musée d'Art Moderne in Saint-Etienne, France; Corporeal-Technoreal, prepared by Yu Yeon Kim, an independent curator from New York City; and Identity and Tolerance, a special project dedicated to contemporary Chinese art.

Voyage Sentimental, on display at the National Museum in Poznań (9 Marcinkowskiego Ave.) and the Zamek Culture Center (80/82 ¦więty Marcin St.), takes a look at how Central Europe has been searching for its identity through art. Each of the featured artists has created a personal narrative on the subject, employing paintings, photography and spatial forms.

Corporeal-Technoreal, being shown at Stara Drukarnia (3 Zwierzyniecka St.), portrays humanity harnessed by new technologies in a world engulfed by globalization.

Identity and Tolerance, on display at the Zamek Culture Center, was prepared by Gu Zhenqing, a curator who works in Beijing and Shanghai. The exhibition is a critical take on contemporary Chinese art.
