Creativity World Biennale

By:  | November - 10 - 2010

[Artspace] at Untitled, a contemporary arts center located at 1 NE 3rd Street in downtown Oklahoma City is organizing the 2010 Creativity World Biennale to be presented November 17, 2010 – January 8, 2011 in Untitled’s galleries and extending into venues throughout the historic Automobile Alley district along Broadway. The international invitational exhibit is being planned to coincide with Creative Oklahoma’s hosting of the 2010 Creativity World Forum November 15 – 17, 2010 in Oklahoma City.

Modeled after the long-running Venice Biennale, held every two years in Italy, the exhibition will focus on the visual arts and has as its theme, New Processes, New Approaches, New Art. It will include the work of artists selected to represent each of seven different Districts of Creativity worldwide: Catalonia (Spain), Denmark, Germany, Flanders (Belgium), Oklahoma (US), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Scotland (UK). The artists representing each District are pioneers in new media. In defining the theme for the Biennale, Jon Burris, director of [Artspace] at Untitled and the Biennale stated, “The theme is based on the idea that as new technologies are developing around the world, so too are new processes of creating art involving new media and new materials. Artists world-wide are embracing new methods of producing art as a result of these new technologies and it is the goal of this Biennale to introduce new aesthetic approaches that have developed as a result.”
