About the programme

Digital Art has continuously evolved since its emergence in the 1960s and ‘70s. Not only did creators use digital technologies as a way to produce artworks, creators are deeply engaged with digital technologies as a medium. With the advent of the World Wide Web in the mid-1990s, different forms of artistic explorations of the internet emerged. In the early 2000s, net art began to address critical topics around Web2 and social media, as well as altered the production and distribution of artworks on social networking sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram. Fast forward to 2021, we witnessed the mainstream adoption of NFTs. Not only did new opportunities arise for digitally native artists, a new aesthetic emerged, changing the way we engage, collect, and appreciate digital art. How has digital technology informed new forms of art and questions the traditional idea of art objects?
