The Wrong Digital Biennale, Internet Fame pavilion
The third edition of tres_W digital art exhibition at Las Armas.
The Sacred 419 at The Square Gallery
With a relation to the transient connection of online friendships and the effect it has on this current generation, contributing artists have never met face to face, yet have formed bonds and projects separate to the show, which enabled this collaborative project to take place. Themes of addiction, obsession and cyber crime are at the core of the pieces and indirectly translate the unconscious means that formed the relationships.
at M bar
An environment that reflects the ‘perfect short circuit’ between the web and the reality, immaterial object and real object. Focused on postinternet sensation, a loss of the meaning of the white cube to the Third Era, a sweet technophilia of the Internet.
Museum of Virtual Art 2
“The mission of MOVA extends beyond the reach of a post-Fried ambition towards the sterile, autonomous art that has dominated Western discourse, arguably leaving an irreversible lineage of minoritarian-proof traditions in the contemporary academic, intellectual, and artistic spheres.
The mission of MOVA is to open up the possibilities, not only of viewership, but of production to the public communities. This is an act of sociocultural destabilization, as well as (and primarily) a demonstration of the socioeconomic power of the machine in which the entirety of MOVA was produced and can be viewed: the personal computer.” – Nicholas Zhu
ELASTICA – at GiacomQ
Collaborative exhibit between Amarcord, Sleazy Kid and I.
“Time is elastic. We can go away from the event but at some point the elastic snaps and we always come back to it.”
– Nick Cave
Elastica, a project that speaks through sound and imagery, exploring objects passed through the Internet and our clinging to it.
One of the common themes of the web is nostalgia, something that has actually existed. Something that could have been and became only a memory thanks to virtual storytelling. Elastica tries to take us in a space and in a time that may have never existed but which we miss.
at The Hub
Superchief Gallery Soho present Post Vision’s exhibition in partnership with GIPHY
An international exhibition with the artists featured with Post Vision and an exhibit and performances by abbi press & Dirty Chocolate.
Dada Calling – at Fondazione Cicogna Rampana – Palazzolo, Italy
DADA IS DAD
An ideal immersive environment created by Marica Martella, Matteo Duccoli and Yaser Ahmady for the anniversary of 100 years of Dadaism.
A fifteenth-century underground icehouse adapted to the present, a gap in both time and space.
Reality is incorporated by the Internet that is regurgitated in the reality to later return into the web, also known as perfect short circuit.
