MY 60X1.COM IS PART OF THE NET ART EXHIBITION AT AARHUS MUSEUM, DENMARK.
7 February – 26 April 2009
ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum
The most recent technology has pride of place, and the individual visitor is at the centre from 7 February, when ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum invites the public inside into a glittering world of digital art. Interactive installations, sound works and robotic art are only a few of the various experiences awaiting the public when the museum presents a spectacular media show of international works of digital art. The exhibition ENTER ACTION – Digital Art Now is part of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Aarhus Kunstmuseum, which will be marked in ARoS throughout 2009. While the museum’s jubilee exhibition Aarhus Kunstmuseum anno 1859 in the West Gallery points back in time, ENTER ACTION – Digital Art Now erects a milepost for artists’ abilities in the year 2009, when digital art and mankind are united to form a whole. Most of the 13 works in the exhibition have in common that they are interactive and centered on man the player – homo ludens. These works thus involve the individual guest: sensory, appealing, playful and insistent, ENTER ACTION – Digital Art Now reflects the influence of technology on modern humanity in all of its facets and shows what art is also capable of today.
