Navigating the Interplay of Physical and Digital Realities in Contemporary Art
The concept of web art has transcended its previous confinement to the internet. Today, contemporary artists are not just creating within the confines of the web but are crafting their art using and reflecting the information culture in both online and offline spaces, as well as in the vast territory in between.
Enter the "Web to Verse" evolution—an ongoing exploration that takes various forms in different locations, with diverse artists and collaborative curations. The launch of this global project at MODAL Gallery focuses on Activism, shedding light on how artists are critically engaging with and questioning this brave new world.
This exhibition is a testament to the collaborative effort of curators Valentino Catricalà, Alfredo Cramerotti, and Auronda Scalera, in partnership with Thomas Dukes.
In this age of transformation and exploration, the intersection of physical and digital worlds opens up exciting opportunities for artists and creators to redefine the boundaries of art and expression. The "Web to Verse" project is a testament to our ongoing journey into this new, interconnected realm, offering a glimpse into a future where the physical and digital are no longer distinct entities but rather a harmonious blend that promises limitless possibilities.
