imagesWOAH today sees the launch of The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale, the concept and outcome is pretty incredible with such diverse works being shown and with such a broad spectrum of artists.

The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale

WELCOME
The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale opens its “online” doors, here at http://thewrong.org/ , and in a more relaxed pace, its “AFK” doors in more than ten different cities around the world.

What is The Wrong’s mission? To create, promote and push positive forward-thinking contemporary digital art to a wider audience worldwide through a biennial event that gathers the best selected by the best, while embraces the young talents of today’s digital art scene.

A team of 30 top curators/artists have been working for more than 6 months to feature what they like best in the new digital art world. The biennial is divided into pavilions; virtual spaces in which selected works are exhibited. In total, there are 30 online pavilions, including an “unlimited” pavilion open to public participation and a “meta” pavilion exclusively featuring exclusively the artwork of the curators. More than 300 artists have been invited officially, and have their work featured in the pavilions, and several hundreds are still applying to until the end of the event to participate of the “unlimited” open pavilion. The Wrong is the only free biennial that is fully accessible both to participate and to attend, and everything just one click away.

The Wrong has no theme. Each of the official pavilions has a curator responsible to select its artists. The curators leading pavilions are Jodi, Yoshi Sodeoka, Anthony Antonellis, Rollin Leonard, Lorna Mills, Curt Cloninger, Emilio Gomariz, Eric Mast, Chiara Passa, Max Hattler, A.Bill Miller, Helena Acosta, Peter Rahul, Miyö Van Stenis, Andrew Benson, Emilie Gervais, Rick Silva, Michaël Borras, Sara Ludy, Ellectra Radikal, Giselle Zatonyl, Protey Temen, Johann Velit, Michael Staniak, Gerhardt Rubio Swaneck, Rosa Menkman, Joseph Yølk Chiocchi, Cristina Ghetti, Julia Borges Araña, Guilherme Brandão e David Quiles Guilló.

The open public unlimited pavilion (aka Homeostasis Lab) displays a selection of artwork submissions that artists and general public interested in participating in the event, but who were not invited by any curator, can submit to the two curators assigned specifically to this space . An open call was released early April 2013, and will run until the last day of the event, allowing everyone interested to have a chance to submit their work also during the event. The content of this pavilion will be curated by Julia Borges Araña + Guilherme Brandão and renewed everyday until last day of the biennial.

The curators pavilion (aka META) will open its doors later this month, and displays exclusively artworks generated by the curators. The curators’s pavilion curator, David Quiles Guilló, is also the creative director of the The Wrong, and found guilty of selecting the 30 curators of the biennial. He is the founder and creative director of ROJO®, the art joint responsible for putting this biennale together, from initial ideas to getting everyone on board, to design, production and full media communication of the event, until its last consequences.

In addition, and for everyone who really needs to share a drink AFK (away from keyboard) with their friends, The Wrong curators have selected several art spaces in cities around the world to host The Wrong Embassies, temporary AFK projects, where the physical experience of the digital biennale will take place, featuring live performances, workshops and exhibitions.

At the very end of the biennial, The Wrong Book will be launched, compiling a selection of the best digital artwork submitted by all participants to specifically appear printed in this book. Due to the very nature of the event, we had to think of something amazing, so The Wrong Book’s binding will be done in “random mode”, meaning that each and every copy will be unique. It will be available for orders online on January 2014. More news on this very soon.

The Wrong is, as David Quiles Guilló puts it; “A large gathering of creative individuals, inside a virtual enviroment, speaking the highest form of human communication; ART”.

Re-post from Lifelounge:

251013115427_monafomadeetMONA FOMA, Tasmania’s annual Festival of Music and Art, is back. We’re fucking excited. You should be too. After having our minds fisted by the gnarly arm of Dark Mofo late last year, we are now slaves to the island beast and its yearly offerings. And the time has come to headily succumb to what, on an embargoed email, reads to be another ball tearing journey to the thumping heart of Hobart. Since its inception in 2009, the five-day, multi-disciplined orgy of art has helped cement Tasmania’s place within Australia’s cultural fabric. Forget apples and biker speed, thanks to David Walsh’s fortress of fantastic, MONA, and the collective mind power of Tasmania’s creative community, Tassie is now all about throwing rad festivals and parties. We actually couldn’t sum the lineup better than the presser itself, so in a nutshell, among this year’s MONA FOMA madness there’ll be “…a dancing robot, a free-styling philosopher, prog-punk space opera, morning meditation, black metal with violins, gender liberationists, ambient electronica, string quartet protest music, a Krautrock pioneer, bluegrass Bach, improvised pipe organ, and the usual Bacchanalian nightclub mayhem of Faux Mo. Oh, and lasers.” Yep. The organised chaos has been orchestrated by Brian Ritchie of Violent Femmes fame, along with MONA senior curators Nicole Durling and Olivier Varenne. It’s all about championing the festival’s “…egalitarian philosophy”, which is basically fancy speak for everyone gets to party as hard as everyone else. The venue for this year’s event will centralise at Macquarie Wharf (MAC1 and MAC2) for the first time and will feature two stages, three orchestra’s, over 200 artists and fuck all sleep. Perfecto. Enough yabbering.

Here’s the lineup. MONA FOMA – JANUARY 15-19

This Saturday I will be giving a talk about my practice and current research here in Athens.  Fellow resident Catriona Gallagher and myself will be giving short talks alongside opening up the studio for those that want to come and have a look see at to what we have been upto.

Here is the SNEHTA press release:

 

Snehta invites you to “Novel Reflections”, an open-studio and talks event by our current resident artists, Catriona Gallagher and Dickie Webb. Catriona and Dickie will each give a 20 minute presentation of their practice and research interests during their time in Athens. Throughout the evening the flat will function as an open studio so we welcome everyone to come and explore the artists’ research and creative practices.

Dickie will discuss his attraction to the liminal qualities within heterotopias and non-places and how these anthropomorphic spaces are utilised as metaphors. He will use past and present research of the Athenean landscape as a means to highlight the potential for looking forward and seeing post-since, making the most of the liminal space as a creative foundation in his practice. Dickie’s title for this presentation is: “Searching For Other And Finding Since”.

Catriona will discuss root ideas that have inspired her practice, from airfields and ports to weeds and floorboards, and examine ideas from previous work about preservation and heritage in light of her findings in Athens.

Snehta promotes and facilitates local and international artists through its residency and exhibitions programmes in Kypseli, Athens. Artists and other thinkers are selected through an open call to spend two months researching in Athens. Snehta stands for the name of the City of Athens written in reverse. This name metaphorically suggests that the artists involved are to rediscover Athens by reading and translating it alternatively. We emphasize for the programme and the resident artists to bring a renewed awareness of Athens to the audience through the works produced, exhibitions and events. The programme’s mission is to educate by spreading contemporary art practice whilst expanding artistic practices that present elements of innovation and experimentation.
