Featuring 60 artists, collaborations, and collectives, this exhibition examines the radical impact of internet culture on visual art through more than 70 works across a variety of mediums, including painting, performance, photography, sculpture, video, and virtual reality. The exhibition is divided into five thematic sections: ‘Networks and Circulation’, ‘Hybrid Bodies’, ‘Virtual Worlds’, ‘States of Surveillance’, and ‘Performing the Self’. The development of the internet after 1989 engendered the introduction of new digital technologies, and the massive proliferation of images of all kinds, drastically altering the ways in which we access and generate information. Themes explored in the exhibition include ideas of human enhancement; the internet as a site of both surveillance and resistance; the circulation and control of images; the possibilities for exploring identity and community; and new economies of visibility.
