Atlanta 1996


Atlanta 1996


The first ARTIADE was staged in parallel to the hundredth anniversary games in 1996in Atlanta. Through the efforts of the founder, Renate Westhoff, this unique event had its premiere at this venue.

It was shown in an architecturally beautiful hall at Colony Square Center, PeachtreeSt. in Atlanta, USA Artists from 27 countries participated at that time. The firstARTIADE had already been a huge success. The idea that not only the athletes of thecountries were represented, but also the artists of the participating nations, foundexcellent acceptance. In addition to reports from „America Week USA“ (a weeklynewspaper in Chicago), the „Kronen Zeitung Austria“ (a daily Newspaper) and manyothers, the well-known and prominent news presenter Elmar Thevesen of Germantelevision interviewed the artists in detail. Due to this first impact of the ARTIADE, itwas a logical consequence to continue this coherent concept, to make it a permanentcultural component of the Olympic Games. That was the basic idea of this exhibitionconcept.
