The online platform ART+ announces 180 of the most promising emerging artists at a critical moment, when they are poised to become established artists, chosen by 30 world-leading curators. A streamed selection of the artist’s work, including rising stars from across the globe, will be shown on the BiennaleOnline exhibition that opens 26 April. BiennaleOnline is the first curated, exclusively online biennial exhibition of contemporary art. Facilitating links between organisations and practitioners operating within the global biennial community by providing resources and an open platform for exchange, collaboration and research.
The first platform of its kind, BiennaleOnline makes available a curated selection of artists’ work on any Internet-enabled device, anywhere in the world. A modular interface allows visitors to follow the specially curated paths and quickly sort selections according to artist, medium, region, and other criteria, and to view works in relation to those of other artists or zoom in to examine details and surfaces. Users may also define and tag routes themselves, creating personalised maps to share their favourite artists through social media forums, including Art+, Twitter and Facebook.
The team consists of leading international curators who are affiliated with prestigious museums such as the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Serpentine Gallery in London, Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, SMAK in Ghent, Leeum Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, the MAC in Hornu, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit, and the Jewish Museum in New York.
The 30 leading curators selected five artists each, with a minimum of two from their own country. The number of works per artist was unlimited and the curators chose at least one piece from each of the following categories: photography, new media, installation, performance, and traditional media (painting, drawing, sculpture).
