Curated by Morehshin Allahyari and Myriam Vanneschi
A prominent dialogue in computation within the last decade has been the mobile platform. Artists have been re-purposing software and apps to create a critical visual language that didn’t exist before. The use of apps in different cultural contexts and with access to certain technologies creates a technological aesthetic that is glocal (local + global).
The AP<P>ART project reflects on these ideas and the interplay of mobile apps and visual language within cultural, social, and economic boundaries of regions; exploring how artists from different parts of the world use phone apps to push the possibilities and limitations of art and technology. The AP<P>ART project includes two exhibitions and a series of panels and workshops in Tehran and Shiraz.
Participating Artists: Morehshin Allahyari, Anthony Antonellis, Amirali Ghasemi, Mohsen Hazrati, Anahita Hekmat, Claudia Mate, Kimmo Modig, Mani Nilchiani, Eva Papamargariti, Yoshi Sodeoka, Angela Washko.
Workshop by: Anthony Antonellis and PussyKrew (Tehran)
