(Italiano) Segni leggeri. Internet non è per sempre

(Italiano) BAG Gallery di Parma ha aperto da qualche giorno “Segni Leggeri. Internet non è per sempre”, la bipersonale di Guido Segni e Luca Leggero. Una mostra inconsueta che la BAG decide di ospitare per la particolarità e la forza concettuale che contraddistinguono le ricerche dei due artisti toscani, posti in un dialogo di confronto che ne mette in evidenza i punti di tangenza, le peculiari caratteristiche e gli originali punti di vista su ciò che concerne l’uso e la presenza di Internet nella vita quotidiana di ciascun individuo contemporaneo.

Archeonauts: the exhibition at Galerie Charlot in Paris

The exhibition "Archeonauts" attempts to bring together a group of artists who are also activists, theorists and visionaries. Out of sync with the present, they delve into a global pre- and post- internet material and immaterial culture. They belong to two different waves: one is the generation of artists born at the dawn of what has been termed the "end of the history"; the other is one of the first generations to have appropriated new information technologies for artistic purposes.

If you aren’t chasing things like that, you’d rather stay in your daily sandbox made of Google, Facebook and so on
