Modeled after the long-running Venice Biennale, held every two years in Italy, the exhibition will focus on the visual arts and has as it’s theme, New Processes, New Approaches, New Art. It will include the work of seventeen artists selected to represent each of six different Districts of Creativity worldwide: Catalonia (Spain), Denmark, Flanders (Belgium), Oklahoma (US), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), 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.”
