To mark the launch of the MICAS virtual exhibition of contemporary Maltese artists’ work—Between Sea and Land—arranged virtually within the virtual 3D environment that simulates the forthcoming MICAS gallery spaces, MICAS will stage a panel discussion interrogating the intersection of the art and digital worlds.
Many artists are currently working partly or wholly in digital form, including Artificial Intelligence, embracing many of the opportunities which this ever developing medium of new technology affords. The closure of museums and galleries during the recent pandemic saw a rapid adoption of the possibilities of presenting art online, with the art engaged public readily embracing the concept of exploring and understanding art in its non-physical form. The rise of NFT’s within this climate has further pushed the boundaries of how art is evaluated.
Bringing together a panel which includes two of the artists exhibiting in the MICAS online exhibition, the curator of the exhibition and a scientist and entrepreneur, we discuss this new and changing landscape which continues to impact all aspect of the art world, exploring the triumphs and pitfalls of the relationship between the art world and the digital world.
The panel discussion will be chaired by Edith Devaney, Chair of the MICAS Creative Committee and will include the exhibition’s curator, independent art historian Jo Baring, artificial intelligence scientist and entrepreneur Angelo Dalli, and contributing artists Matthew Attard and Austin Camilleri.
Art Historian Katya Micallef will give a brief introduction before the panel discussion.
