are there any artwork guidelines?
anything goes, but the wrong focus is on the abstract essence of joy and the exploration of creativity

no. there is no economic remuneration for building your pavilion or running your embassy for the wrong

can i secure sponsors or grants to fund my project?
yes. you are free to secure sponsors for your pavilion or embassy, and make your own revenue in the context of the wrong. your sponsors will only run their brand presence in your project premises

if you secure funds, please be fair when paying for your work and your featured artists' work

are there any materials to introduce the wrong to any third party?
please use about to introduce the wrong to artists, sponsors & institutions, press may be a good support too

what is the acceptance ratio?
the wrong practices instant radical inclusion, meaning; anyone wanting to join is very welcome without the need of a CV, cover letter, application fee or any of the other cultural industry standards you may encounter regularly, but when joining, please consider to do so in good faith as we embrace you in same fashion

acceptance ratio of proposals is almost 1oo% when instructions are followed, energy is positive, and deadlines are met. understand that as you are free to submit, we are also free to choose

if your pavilion/embassy does not enter the wrong, it does not make your proposal or you as curator/artist, unheard or invalid. it merely means that it does not fit the context of the wrong

how can i be in touch about it all?
all announcements are published at the artists & curators facebook groups

my question is not here...
questions are welcome. please write an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible

disclaimer
conditions, guidelines and deadlines may be added, changed and/or updated from now and to the opening of the event, always aiming to improve the organisation of the biennale, and to improve the guidance of its community

any last words?
please be nice, be patient, respect everyone's work, opinions, and let’s have a good time

welcome to the wrong
