Creativity is expressed in finding new ways. In Darmstadt, artists have joined to form "GroupV" to explore the virtual.
Artificial intelligence, metaverse, virtuality – pretty scary? Or rather great? What are the digital hypes doing to art? Or, to put it another way, what does art do with these digital technologies? The art collective groupV will be asking these questions in the exhibition Uncanny.Great -2024 at Frankfurt’s DER MIXER gallery from February 23 to March 9, 2024. AI will be used to distort and reinterpret real works of art, virtual exhibition spaces will be used and floating objects will be “beamed” into the room via VR headsets. The current exhibition at DER MIXER gallery includes an “ArtLAB” alongside the presentation of works by the group members. Here, groupV reveals its artistic research process in dealing with new digital technologies and involves visitors in a situational way.
