The Wrong (again) is a biennial celebration of digital art that takes place both online and in over 40 real-life locations around the world. With more than 500 contributing artists, the event has no theme beyond its stated goal: "to create, promote, and push positive forward-thinking contemporary digital art to a wider audience worldwide". It is fully accessible and free for both participants and visitors.
In Vancouver, "The New Flesh" examines our perceptions and understanding of our physical bodies in a digital age. This particular exhibition, like some others taking place at The Wrong (again) 'embassies', will not be available online so as to cultivate a sense of community amongst visitors and to take advantage of interactive artworks.
Works such as Scot Cotterel's 'Curated Ebay PDF' build a slightly looser community online, by creating an "open invitation-based curatorial exchange project" that asks would-be curators to submit their favourite artworks from eBay. By way of explanation: "ITS (sic) AN EXHIBITION, AS A PDF, CURATED BY YOU, INVITED BY ME, BECAUSE THE INTERNET".
There are virtual pavillions for internet and poetry, for architecture and sound art, for gender concepts, for ontology, for virtual sculptures; you can even submit an original digital 3D model to be printed and included in the exhibition. While that particular offer is first-come, first-served, The Wrong (again) lasts until January 31st, so we all have time to digest the best of digital art.
