Net.Art Exhibition

Guelman Gallery
Curators: Marat Guelman, Olga Shishko

Art projects selected for the exhibition present a wide spectrum of work by famous contemporary art creators using the Internet technology. Each work might be considered continuation of a story or a myth that had been constructed by an artist long before he(she) started working with the new technology. This exhibition is the first, as well as provocative and controversial, attempt to present Net-art in a Moscow gallery. On the one hand it is an experiment of traditional exhibiting, on the other, an attempt to ‘decompose’ Net-art for components accenting various positions of an artists in regards to technology:
Net-art as an image;
Net-art as a game;
Net-art as a conceptual form;
Net-art as projection of the offline;
Net-art as overcoming the problem of author’s death’
Net-art as a common apartment.
Discussion on Net-art in Russia is slowly though steady revolutionizing. Works by Russian Net-artists is an object of fixed attention of the Western press. They debate on theoretical aspects of cultural differences, problems of authenticity on the Net, succession of traditional and digital art, peculiarities of Russian Net-art. The very appearance of the Internet is often associated with prophecy made by Serguei Eisenstein in his ‘montage theory’, (succeeded by browser frames).
In one of the first animations produced in 1912 by Russian film director Starevich, cinema was reflecting about itself for the first time. Today it’s time for the art to reflect on the problem of its own existence. Web space ideally imitates and parodies the real art situation.
