Although it has been around for over a decade, Sinopale is not an institution in the traditional sense. It is indeed first and foremost a network. Of course it can be frustrating when you come in from the outside and do not understand this multifaceted and organic structure, but with time it becomes clear how dynamic it can be. Each edition of the biennial is a trace rather than a result. Each edition becomes a chapter in a story, an occasion – an exhibition in constant creation where both local and internationally invited artists mainly produce works of art together with local craftsmen, tailors, organizations, bakeries, and some twenty volunteers.
