Daniela Arriado (Norway/Chile) is the Director and founder of Art Republic – Urban media platform, and the Screen City Biennial in Norway. Her work explores new curatorial approaches towards expanded borders of cinematic experiences and the audio-visual.
She is a consultant and curatorial advisor for art organizations and start-ups in Berlin, Tel Aviv and Lisbon. Her aim is to create and explore the meeting between art – tech- and innovation, urban screens and online streaming platforms for video art and animation – and through these projects, pave new paths for the distribution and dissemination of the moving image to the public.

TALK IN THE UMAA FRAMEWORK
Curating the Expanded Moving Image in Post-Internet Times
My research primarily focuses on screen-based curatorial practices, and the role of the curator in the field of expanded moving image–from urban space to the vast Internet landscape – and how this is changing in the realms of our digital culture and post-Internet times. The research is dedicated to the current turn towards digital exhibition formats like online platforms and moving-image biennials, and to the challenges and possibilities this shift presents in terms of spatial and aesthetic qualities and experiences, as well as questions around accessibility and an expansion of the audience.
With reference to the Screen City Biennial, under the umbrella of Art Republic, I will address the expanded curatorial role – the responsibility that lies within this role, working with unstable media in unstable places – when the role becomes more like a facilitator and a translator (and often in this chronology) when we work with the aesthetics of resistance.
