EXHIBITION: Unspoken Dialogues
12.11.2016 — 11.03.2017
Location: Millennium Gallery
Rua Augusta, 96,
The exhibition Unspoken Dialogues is part of the programme of the 2nd Post Screen Festival and includes works by guest artists Clare Strand, Gary Hill and Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. These names are joined by selected artists Abelardo Gil-Fournier, Abraham Avnisan, Atif Akin and the TeYosh duo, who have responded to the challenge by presenting their proposed art projects. These have been evaluated and carefully selected by an international curatorial committee.
Through themes such as language, communication, digital poetics, narrativity, social networks and surveillance systems, different media are presented by the artists: video, photography, software applications, internet-based art, and media objects. The exhibition deals with the ambiguity of images, of meanings and the information conveyed by television, by video and photographic language, by the virtual nature of the web or by the ubiquitous accessibility that portable screens provide.
