A melting pot for the established, the emerging and the underrepresented, to explore creativity and digital culture in a positive and constructive way, The Wrong showcases a wide range of cultures, styles, and mediums to a global audience, fostering a more inclusive and diverse digital art scene, and encouraging artistic growth and experimentation.

Bringing together curators, artists and institutions, online and offline, every two years, garnering praise from worldwide press, art community and public, and rendering institutional recognition and awards like SOIS Cultura and the honorific mention by European Commission S+T+ARTS prize.

The Wrong Biennale has featured work by over ten thousand artists and curators, showcased in over seven hundred pavilions, embassies and institutions around the world.
