The Art Ii Biennial addresses current themes, participates in the public discussion through the methods of art and daringly combines the cultural heritage of Ii with contemporary art.
An essential aspect of the event is the facilitation of the interaction between the local community and the international arts professionals through community activities. The northern landscape and humanity have been the essential topics of the Art Ii Biennial over the years. The outdoors in-situ art at the Biennial is located primarily at the Environmental Art Park and the town centre. Temporal, local and cultural conditions affect the production of these pieces of art. One of the main values of the event is sustainability: ecological, economical, social and cultural sustainability.
