jerusalem biennale
The Jerusalem Biennale is dedicated to exploring the places in which the Contemporary Art world and the Jewish world of content meet. It is a stage for professional artists, who create today and refer in their work to Jewish thought, spirit, tradition or experience.

What are we looking for?
The Jerusalem Biennale is seeking Institutions, Artists Groups and independent Curators worldwide to submit proposals for Biennale2015 – The world’s first Biennale dedicated to Contemporary Jewish Art. The proposals should be for an entire exhibition of any discipline or combination of disciplines (painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, sound and more). Proposals for performance(s) can be included in an additional chapter within the general proposal.

The Biennale encourages collaboration between different organizations and groups to submit a joint proposal. Collaborative submissions will be ranked higher.

The proposals should include: a. Exhibition Title b. Exhibition Theme c. Curator d. Participating Artists e. Jerusalem Venue (optional) f. Budget g. Images

The images should be as relevant to the actual show proposed as possible: in case of existing pieces the image of the actual piece would be required. In case of art works that will be made for Biennale2015, images of related art works by the same artist should be attached as well as a short description of the new work and its connection with previous work of that artist.

The number of exhibitions that will be chosen to participate on Biennale2015 is not predetermined. The decision will take into account financial constraints of the Biennale.

Deadline for Submission: February 12th, 2015.

Final answers will be given not later than March 5th, 2015.
