“It is no longer about logging on or off, but rather living within and creating harmony with the realms and constructs of the internet for our newest generation of inhabitants.”
Mark Dorf, Path_ (2013).
The exhibition New Realities explores the current art and cultural landscape through the work of 30 artists, designers and musicians from around the globe. It reflects on concepts brought by the integration of digital and the internet into our society. The artists involved use digital technologies to express their interests, perspectives and visions of a new cultural reality that is breaking boundaries.
New Realities is a touring exhibition curated by Alpha-ville presenting interactive artworks, digital art installations, music & art apps and physical displays alongside a parallel programme of events.
The first exhibition was part of Music+Arts, an international showcase of new trends in music, art and digital culture powered by Mobile World Capital Barcelona and Movistar in collaboration with Alpha-ville.
It took place from 21st October 2014 to 17th February 2015.
