New media and technologies have radically changed the way we experience our daily life, increasingly modifying our creative processes. Traditional disciplines like drawing, painting and sculpture are increasingly being merged with digital and electronic techniques, allowing new aesthetic experiences and opening new possibilities of perception.

Digital Canvas brings together a selection of outstanding international artists with more than 80 video works that explicitly employ the use of electronic and digital tools while making direct references to art history. Mounir Fatmi’s Technologia links ancient circular Arabic calligraphy and Marcel Duchamp’s rotoreliefs, the first manifestation of kinetic art produced in the context of modern and industrialized society. Eelco Brand uses both paint and digital techniques to create a hyper-real cosmos that reflects his conception of nature. Cosimo Miorelli creates a new form of storytelling with live-drawing sessions accompanied by music, executed on a tablet and recorded. Yannis Kranidiotis creates visual soundscapes by digitally re-elaborating old masterpieces. The winner of our open call Ulla Nolden, investigates movement and its rules in everyday environments, and visualizes its abstract algorithms by using an aesthetic language that she has developed in her photographic work.

Digital Canvas also features outstanding works by Joe Hamilton, Jacques Perconte, UBERMORGEN, Pierce Warnecke, Kurt Hentschläger, Claudia Hart, Andreas Nicolas Fischer, Johanna Reich, Nicolas Rupcich, Richard Garet, Feng Chen, Dejan Radovanovic, Daniel Canogar, Claudia Larcher, Mateo Amaral, Ryan Whittier Hale, Chris Coleman, Laleh Mehran, Pia MYrvoLD and Philipp Artus.

In addition, Digital Canvas gives a Carte Blanche to Marco Mancuso (Founder and Director of Digicult) and to The One Minutes, a global network based in Amsterdam producing and distributing films with the duration of one single minute.

Marco Mancuso presents “Hyper Reality”: how the visual contemporary apparatus is changing due to digital and science technologies, becoming - in a way - More Real than Real. The selection features artworks by Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, Syntfarm, Boris Labbé, Quayola, Thomas Köner, Thorsten Fleisch.

The One Minutes’ Carte Blanche features Laurel Backman, Sophie Penkethman, Christoph Meyer, Renee Lear, Guusje Kaayk, Dana Verbaan and Alper T.Tunga Ince and Frank ter Horst.

After the NY premiere at the CreativeTechWeek Digital Canvas will be broadcast exclusively on ikonoTV for 24 hours, starting on May 7th at 12pm EST.
