14th Media Art Biennale WRO 2011
2011, 10th May – 18th September
In terms of program and organization the 2011 edition of WRO had the most complex so far: 11 venues offering the audience a diverse programme of exhibitions, shows and actions. It had also attracted the biggest audience – over 40 000 visitors. The most popular sites were the installations on the main square, the exhibitions in the Pokoyhof passage – spaces in the city centre open to the public for the first time – as well as at the National Museum and the WRO Art Center. The exhibition at the WRO Art Center was a result of a two year European project realized together with five other leading European new art centers. The WRO Resume exhibition, which had crowned the Biennale, has later been exhibited in Spain and Romania.
The 2012 edition of Art Spaces Directory, featuring 400 most interesting art spaces in 96 countries, had listed the WRO Art Center as one of the six most important in Poland.
