14th Media Art Biennale WRO 2011: Alternative Now

Media Art Biennale WRO 2011 is now oficially open. 14th edition is titled ALTERNATIVE NOW. The theme ALTERNATIVE NOW highlighting the roles of individual artistic stances and strategies that keep a deliberate distance from the institutionalized mechanisms and standardized expectations of the art world.

On the first day of the Biennale we visited exhibitions at WRO Atelier, National Museum, WRO Art Center and Pokoyhof Passage.

The WRO Media Art Biennale is the leading forum for new media art in Poland and Central Europe. Since its inception in December 1989, WRO has been devoted to art forms using contemporary means of creation and communication, presenting the work of highly renowned artists as well as debuts by young newcomers.

The WRO Biennale is organized by the WRO Media Art Center Foundation as part of the WRO Art Center’s activities.
