Copenhagen Ultracontemporary Biennale curators, Tijana Miskovic and Thierry Geoffroy (COLONEL), are coming to Washington, DC to meet with WPA member artists and curators for one-on-one portfolio reviews.

Portfolio Review Dates: Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21, 2015, 10am-5pm
Curator Talk: Thursday, November 19, 2015, 7-8pm

Ms. Miskovic and Mr. Geoffroy are interested in meeting with WPA member artists and curators working with issues of society who are interested in participating in the 1st Copenhagen Ultracontemporary Biennale, which will take place in 2017. The biennale will include Danish and international artists and curators who have a burning need to produce and exhibit works that relate to what is happening in the world at the moment or what will happen if the world doesn’t act now. Ms. Miskovic and Mr. Geoffroy will be conducting the portfolio reviews as part of their search for participants in the biennale.

The Copenhagen Ultracontemporary Biennale will feature art on the same day it is made. Ms. Miskovic and Mr. Geoffroy will be looking for work that deals with issues that cannot wait to be expressed, things such as; wars, climate conditions, political changes, and other factors and events that require immediate public attention.
