Web Biennial 2014:
Open Call for Curators and Curatorial Projects

Web Biennial is a bi-annual, contemporary art exhibition that is dedicated for net-art, web art and online projects. Since 2002, Web Biennial introduced thousands of cutting edge online art and artists to a wider public.

The Project, different from other Biennials. It is not only an exhibition but an online collection, and archive. Some project went online but many remain online for more than ten years.

Web Biennial has been etablished as an initiative of Istanbul Contemporary Art Museum by Genco Gulan. Starting in 2002 with the Reload exhibition we made the biennials in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2010, 2012 with or without curators. We had produced online exclusive shows, a symposium as well as physical presentations at one or multiple cities. (For example “Regeneration.011,” curated by Marcus Graf at Plato Sanat)

Web Biennial is an artist run, independent art organisation like iS.CaM and we aim to remain independent. We are not linked with state or any other organisation but we collaborate with many.

For the Web Biennial 2014 we are looking for; curators and curatorial projects as well as a curatorial theme. The curator could be a person or a group. Curatorial Project could be an online exhibition and/ or a physical exhibiton.

Please also explain your idea about a possible information architecture, maintanance of the online site, your plans about funding the project and ideas on the overall sustainability of the WB. Also please let us know if you prefer to make a Symposium together with the exhibition.

Please email your one A4 proposal to:
