Susax Expo is an contemporary art event held in May at Susak every two years. It was founded in 2006 by Herzog Dellafiore and Daniel Devlin.
Artists attending the expo use public space as venue for expressing their art.
Susak Expo’s website states the following motivation for this event:
The original reason for organizing the Susak expo was as a reaction to all the art fairs, biennales and museums of contemporary art sprouting up everywhere, and to highlight the absurdity of this proliferation by staging an international art biennale in the most unlikely of places where, apart from a few people seeing it by mistake and, of course, the participating artists, the chances are no-one will see it.
I would add to this If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? :)
Next Susak Expo will be held in 2020.
