ArtFutura returns to Barcelona with its 23rd edition at the Montevideo at the Open Wall Museum. Starting from 7th November, ArtFutura Hill feature a host of conferences, audiovisual material and a special exhibition entitled ‘ArtFutura XX1’.
ArtFutura will be held simultaneously in 15 other cities including Bogota, Buenos Aires, Lima, Madrid, Palma de Mallorca, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago and Tenerife.
Art Futura deals with the idea of how increasingly ubiquitous technology has become invisible and integrated naturally in our everyday landscape. As an invisible layer that extends across the globe, we share a common culture based on our daily experiences with the devices we use and the services to which we subscribe online. The daily use of these resources creates new customs, new needs which in turn calls for the creation of new devices and applications, so that technology becomes a product of digital culture.
The Open Wall Montevideo Museum will host the exhibition XXI ArtFutura. Featured artists include Paul Friedlander and Theo Jansen. Another highlight of this year’s ArtFutura in Barcelona includes The "Strandbeest" creatures; huge robotic structures, with movements designed to evoke an impression of life. From a distance, they may be mistaken for insects or huge prehistoric skeletons made from industrial age materials. They were created by computer as an algorithm and are moved by the wind and the wet sand found on the Dutch coast.
Additionally, the ArtFutura audiovisual program will share its network in over 15 cities. It includes more than eight hours of high-impact images with the latest contributions in 3D animation, motion graphics, video and special effects.
Feature animation will include the best 3D new shorts, including works by Grant Orchard, Michael Please and Wes Ball.
