or-bits.com 1

or-bits.com is a web-based curatorial platform devoted to supporting practices and dialogues around artistic production, display and distribution online. Through commissioning new works for online exhibitions, promoting critical discourses and writing on its blog and developing offsite projects in collaboration with partnering organisations, or-bits.com aims to instigate an exploration of the creative and critical possibilities of the web as language, medium and subject.

On its website, or-bits.com presents quarterly group exhibitions accompanied by a rolling blog. Each exhibition originates from the exploration of a word and culminates in a media crossover, in which the editorial and miscellany of artists' works are what remain visible of the process of production. The aim is to suggest links between various cultural areas; creating a system in which the artworks and their idiosyncratic languages, the blog posts and their critical trajectories, stand for themselves while being connected to a centre point. Offsite, or-bits.com has collaborated with various art organisations in the production and presentation of gallery exhibitions, events and printed projects.

or-bits.com started its activity in September 2009 and is directed by Marialaura Ghidini.
