Call for contributions to Not Evenly Distributed: a public program of the 20th Biennale of Sydney

2016 sees the 20th edition of the Biennale of Sydney curated by Stephanie Rosenthal, Chief Curator at the Hayward Gallery in London. As part of next year’s event (18 March–5 June 2016), the Biennale are calling for contributions to a unique public program initiative that offers international responses to one of the key themes being explored in the exhibition.

The 20th Biennale of Sydney is titled The future is already here — it’s just not evenly distributed, a phrase as apt today as it was when first coined by science fiction author William Gibson in the early 1990s. As part of a range of programming surrounding the exhibition, the ‘Not Evenly Distributed’ series of talks provides a timely opportunity for an international discussion about the uneven spread of technologies and resources in the world, access to citizenship and political rights today, and the uses and effects of digital technologies in different geographical, political and social contexts.

The Biennale is looking to bring together a range of cultural partners from around the world to respond to the ‘Not Evenly Distributed’ series by submitting their own contributions on this theme. These contributions are imagined to be talks or lectures at cultural centres from known thinkers, writers, curators and artists that might be local to your city and region, and can speak on the topic easily. Audio and video recordings of talks are to be hosted on the 20th Biennale website and submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. Please email Melissa Ratliff, Curator and Manager of Public Programs and Education at the Biennale of Sydney for more details:
