WRO 2015: Test Exposure
Artists are invited to submit works that take on the risks of innovation, inquiry and imagination, using original observations, contemporary technologies and procedures in the process of creating inventive forms, interpreting the present and revising the notion of the future (which no longer seems to be a clearly defined project).
The WRO 2015 Test Exposure Biennale is a testing ground for creative, unconstrained investigations of art’s potential to react to the present and to anticipate future challenges.
The WRO Biennale: about
The WRO Media Art Biennale is the major forum for new media art in Poland, and one of the leading international art events in Central Europe. Since its inception in 1989, WRO has been presenting art forms using new media for artistic expression and communication, exploring current creative territories and building a critical perspective toward emerging issues in culture, art, society and technology.
The previous edition of the WRO Biennale-WRO 2013 Pioneering Values Biennale-was held at 18 sites around the city of Wrocław: museums, galleries, art house cinemas, department stores, old factory halls and public space, where the works of over 200 artists were shown. The exhibitions, concerts, performances, video projections, installations and conferences were attended by more than a thousand accredited guests and over 110,000 visitors. The WRO 2013 Catalog is available both in print and online here.
