Perfect Partner in the Near Future, Yuelai Art Museum, China, 2022
The art exhibition "Perfect Partner in the Near Future" opened free to the public on Oct. 29 at the Yuelai Art Museum in the Yubei District of Chongqing.
This exhibition focuses on artificial intelligence, 3D modeling software, social platforms, games, and other technologies that participate in social governance or rewrite aesthetic standards as human partners. Artists speculate on the potential mode of communication between humans, machines, and digital species and explore the possibility in the form of an exhibition. Integrating technology and art provides new thinking for developing the cultural and art industry in the new era.
The curator Miao Zijin said that the inspiration for this exhibition comes from the Smart China Expo held in Chongqing every year. "It is hoped that through this exhibition, the interrelationship between technology and art will be presented to the audience," said Zijin. The exhibition also discusses two themes. One is to examine how humans handle the labor relationship between humans and machines when technological algorithms and artificial intelligence are particularly advanced. The other direction is how algorithms, 3D modeling software, and social platforms can generate subjective or alternative electronic species. The audience will see the ten artists' images, paintings, and installation works and their imagination of the future world.Yu Ke, executive director of Yuelai Art Museum, said in his speech that, as a practice space for "urban aesthetics," Yuelai Art Museum is actively exploring forming an organic connection with the Smart China Expo. This exhibition has made a bold attempt to connect art and technology and art and the future.
This exhibition is planned by Wang Jumeng and has invited ten artists to bring inspiring exhibits, including Cao Fei, Fei Jun, Lam Pok Yin, Lauren Lee McCarthy, Lawrence Lek, Shi Zheng, Tian Yi, Wang Ziquan, Jack Warne, and Xu Zhen®.
In Jack Warnes participation he presented four new large scale paintings accompanied by his unique Augmented Reality Filters.
