Some argue, and some indeed perceive, that we now live in a world in between what we used to call physical and virtual.
Where are we today? Where are we heading to? Are we really experiencing a switch from a Web world (a virtual, 2-D representation of a 3-D reality) to a Verse world – a boundless environment constantly transmigrating between physical and digital?
The exhibition is structured as an ongoing project investigating the ‘Web to Verse’ evolution from different perspectives. It will take different shapes in different locations, with different artists and even curatorial collaborations. The iteration presented at MODAL Gallery is the launch of the global project with a focus on Activism: the aim of artists to critically inhabit and question this new world.
Renowned international participating artists include:
The exhibition is co-curated by Valentino Catricalà, Alfredo Cramerotti and Auronda Scalera, in collaboration with Thomas Dukes.
