Fission: The New Wave of International Digital Art

Guizhou Provincial Museum 29/4/22-31/8/22
Curated by Birgitta Hosea, Zhang Xiaotao, Li Fei

Featuring 44 international digital media artists, 54 works of art and covering 2200 square metres, this is Guizhou Province’s first international exhibition of digital art. The works cover a range of techniques, disciplines and approaches including interactive media, virtual reality, robotics, immersive installations, experimental animation, artificial intelligence and archaeological visualisation.

The central theme of Fission is the multiple different forms that digital art can take. Like the process of nuclear fission, the concept of digital art has become unstable and shot off in many different directions from its starting point at the intersection of science, technology and art. With transient populations, contradictions and conflicts between social interaction, capital and information, in our era of globalization technology and media reshape the world. Fission is a meeting in virtual time and space of digital art from the media laboratory to the public arena. It marks the rapid development of science and technology and provides a microcosm of the intersection of different cultures at a time of great change.
 
The exhibition is divided into four sections: 1) The Rebirth of Antiquities: the fusion of archaeology and digital art. 2) Post-life imagery: the connection between humans and nature, society and technology. 3) Synthetic Worlds: The Connection Between Virtual Reality and Real Worlds. 4) Algorithmic Images: The Meaning of Digital Art.
