Organized by Art+, “BiennaleOnline“, the first curated, exclusively online biennial exhibition of contemporary art, will open on April 26, 2013.

175 promising artists, many already well-known, were carefully chosen by 30 leading international curators.


Among the curators are famous names such as Hans Ulrich Obrist and Jan Hoet.

The Israeli curator in the team is Gideon Ofrat.

Ofrat has organized exhibitions around the world including the groundbreaking 1993 & 1995 Israeli Pavilion exhibitions at the Venice Biennale. He was the first to organize performance art festivals in Israel as well as 9 pioneering exhibitions on the rise of Israeli Post-Modernism. He is the author of over 30 books and 80 exhibition catalogues including the English translated books One Hundred Years of Art in Israel and The Jewish Derrida.

Each one of the curators has selected 5 artists (including at least 2 of their own country) for the Biennale’s different categories: traditional media, new media, photography, installation and performance.

The Israeli artists who have been selected are:


NEW MEDIA: Uri nir

PHOTOGRAPHY: Pavel Wolberg


PERFORMANCE: Masha Yozefpolsky
