The Jerusalem Biennale will be held for the second time between September 24th and November 5th, 2015 in different locations around the city center of Jerusalem.

Open Call:
Jerusalem Biennale for Contemporary Jewish Art 2015

Deadline for Submission: February 12th, 2015

The Jerusalem Biennale is dedicated to exploring the places in which the Contemporary Art
world and the Jewish world of content meet. It is a stage for professional artists, who create
today and refer in their work to Jewish thought, spirit, tradition or experience.

The Jerusalem Biennale is seeking Institutions, Artists Groups and independent Curators
worldwide to submit proposals for Biennale2015 – The world’s first Biennale dedicated to
Contemporary Jewish Art. The proposals should be for an entire exhibition of any discipline
or combination of disciplines (painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, sound
and more). Proposals for performance(s) can be included in an additional chapter within the
general proposal.

The Biennale encourages collaboration between different organizations and groups to
submit a joint proposal. Collaborative submissions will be ranked higher.

The Jerusalem Biennale is open for the participation of artists from all religions, nationalities and beliefs.

The proposals should include:

a. Exhibition Title
b. Exhibition Theme
c. Curator
d. Participating Artists
e. Jerusalem Venue (optional)
f. Budget
g. Images

The images should be as relevant to the actual show proposed as possible: in case of
existing pieces the image of the actual piece would be required. In case of art works that will
be made for Biennale2015, images of related art works by the same artist should be
attached as well as a short description of the new work and its connection with previous
work of that artist.

The number of exhibitions that will be chosen to participate on Biennale2015 is not predetermined.
The decision will take into account financial constraints of the Biennale.

Deadline for Submission: February 12th, 2015
Sign up form will be available from December 1st
Final answers will be given not later than March 5th, 2015
