Dear Friends, the Share Festival programme is now online.
Like every year, the heart of the festival will revolve around the Share Prize, featuring six digital works of art exploring the theme REAL TIME | REAL SPACE.
The six works short-listed by the jury will be on show to the public from 30th October to 9th November 2013 at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts, Turin. The six finalists are Lauren McCarthy, Komplex, Nika Oblak & Primoz Novak, Christine Sugrue, Myriam Thyes and Nils Völker.
The short-listed works are different spaces of representation of a non-stop stream, artistic practices that create critical visions of our space and time.
The inaugural night of the festival will also see the opening of the Bosch Art Game exhibition, featuring the six prototypes produced as part of the first ever international video game art competition organized by the Netherlands. Come and discover the virtual world of painter Hieronymus Bosch through the works of young European and American developers, and experience Bosch’s surreal imagery in a whole new way.
The Share Prize and Bosch Art Game exhibition will be on show to the public at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts from 30th October to 9th November in Via Accademia Albertina 6, Turin.
On Wednesday, 6th November, Alessandro Bergonzoni will be holding a conference in collaboration with Assemblea Teatro.
On 15th November, two programmes of videos featuring the best of the Japan Media Art Festival and Art Futura will be screened.
On 16th November, come take part in a day-long programme of Share Festival conferences, featuring a stream of international guests who’ll have their say on the theme REAL TIME | REAL SPACE.
