Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville
October 2, 2008 - January 11, 2009
From the website: The organisation of the Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville was entrusted to Peter Weibel, the director of ZKM in Karlshrue who with the help of Won-il Rhee from Korea, one of the curators of PS1 in New York, and the French director of the FRAC in Orleans, Marie-Ange Brayer, brought together works from nearly a hundred artists, placing the spectator in the centre of their universes. The third edition of the International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville will gather more than 150 artists from all over the world in Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada. BIACS 3, to be held from 2 October 2008 to 11 January 2009, will adopt the title “Youniverse” — referring to the interactivity of each individual with the universe. According to the overview presented by the team appointed to plan the contents ¾ Peter Weibel, general director of the ZKM Centre for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Wonil Rhee, Korean curator, and Marie-Ange Brayer, director of FRAC Centre Regional Contemporary Art of Orleáns ¾ the forthcoming biennial will revolve around the connections between art, science, technology, architecture and the environment, within the global context of the information and communication society. “The tendency at present is to democratize the use of technology; from personal computers and mobile phones to faucets and light switches, new technologies allow the user to adapt the environment to his needs, anytime, anywhere,” said Weibel.
The exhibition is organized by Peter Weibel and Marie-Ange Brayer.
