(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
Electronic holography, landscape typography, interactive activism. These are some of the media explored by the 14 artists (amongst whom are PIPA Prize 2013 Winner Cadu, finalist Eduardo Berliner, Adriano Motta and Paulo Vivacqua, all together in the artistic collective “Projeto Cavalo”) who participate in “Digital Provocateur”, the International Digital Art Biennale 2018 Rio de Janeiro, which opens this Saturday, January 6th, at Cidade das Artes.
The exhibition is part of the project “The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale”, which reached its third edition last year. The Biennale explores the multiple possibilities of the “digital culture” through two versions, the “online” and the “offline”. The online version displays artworks by over 1,500 artists, selected by over one hundred curators, on the website thewrong.org. The offline version, on the other hand, comprehends all the “micro-exhibitions” spread in different galleries and art institutions around the world.
In Brazil, Centro Cultural São Paulo, in São Paulo, Airez Gallery, in Curitiba and, naturally, Cidade das Artes, in Rio, are part of the exhibition circuit. The event here is produced by Arte Clube Jacaranda LAB in partnership with TAL Art Projects and the support of O.M.Art. Gabriela Maciel was in charge of the curatorship, with the assistance of João Vergara.
