An exploration of the technological and surreal imaginary of the artists of today, from computer-generated dreams to creative algorithms and avatars that question the meaning of existence More than just an exhibition, but a workshop for study and debate on themes and issues associated with our relationship with technology and the incredible scenarios opened by its evolution: Low Form. Imaginaries and Visions in the Age of Artificial Intelligence is an immersive, multimedia and multisensory display. In an era in which technologies evolve increasingly rapidly and we are questioning how far the relationship between man and machine can go, the exhibition presents the visions of 16 international artists showing a present and a future, the representation of which is the offspring of technological unconsciousness and a dilated imaginary, in which traditional analogical references and the contemporary hyperconnected digital consciousness are combined.
A journey into a technological and surreal imaginarium, through artificial intelligence, dreams generated by computers and creative algorithms On the occasion of the exhibition Low Form. Images and visions in the age of artificial intelligence, artapes presents a selection of videos created by some of the most interesting artists active today. Their research reflects on the status of art in an age of information technology and digital technology, investigating the socio-cultural implications of our present. The exhibited videos, primarily created digitally and through the use of computer-generated images (CGI), combine diverse and wide-ranging cultural references, in a blending of disciplines that reinstates the variety and hybridism of globalised culture.
Alaways linked to the underground scene, a spokeperson of the 90s’ generation, which grew up amongst precariousness and the web, the G8 in Genoa and TV series, Michele Rech, under the pseudonym of Zerocalcare is the protagonist of a large exhibition organised in co-production with Minimondi Eventi. The project is organised around four core themes – Pop, Tribes, Struggle and Resistances, Non-Reportage – and it traces every year of his work featuring posters, a wide selection of illustrations, record covers, original illustrated pages from his 9 books, T-shirts, logos and a site specific work designed by the artist for this occasion.
The spirit and the identity of the museum are being renewed with the latest presentation of the MAXXI Collection: on display are more than 30 worksby a total of 26 artists in a major group show that opens with a section dedicated to some of the 70 new acquisitions, including those by Monica Bonvicini, Katharina Grosse and Paolo Di Paolo, which have in 2018 enriched the museum’s holdings and which are part of a policy of expansion, valorization and safeguarding of the collection. In the second part of the gallery are more than 20 works, including pieces by Bill Viola, Giulio Turcato, Alighiero Boetti, Pablo Echaurren, Pei-Ming, Labics and Aldo Rossi reflect on the status of the work of art, the image and its perception in relation to space. With analogic instruments and new technologies, the thematic exhibition intends on the one hand to highlight the works’ strong link to painting and its traditions and on the other create a counterpoint between the abstract and the figurative.
