The digitization of artistic practices has created a new state of matter. Unmoored from the constraints of materiality, audiovisual and new media works float freely as energy, as ephemeral, temporal art objects and artefacts. Art as code has come into its own in the last few years with web-based galleries dedicated to net art and multimedia, museums curating digital pieces in real and virtual spaces, audiovisual labels concerned with the distribution of video and GIF art, platforms for virtual reality experiences and more. This series of presentations confronts the conditions of contemporary visual art in its various states of ‘neomateriality’ and how it moves through the world as a commodity.
In collaboration with the SAT, audiovisual label and collective, Undervolt & co have launched a new collection of works, on display, from November 2 to 15. Details about the art and artists are here.
