I didn’t know too much about the city and I still don’t, other than the two football clubs and The Beatles, there’s a port too apparently. When Jackson Pollock was showing in Tate Liverpool last year, I was so eager to get up there solely for this exhibition alone, which eventually, I failed. Now, an upcoming exhibition titled Unfold, created by the Foundation for Arts and Creative Technology (FACT) based in the city, showcasing the birth and evolution of starts with Ryoichi Kurokawa. Impressed already.

Museums are fusing science and art, the digital era has brought along many things and new media art is definitely having the prime of its time, Somerset, The Lowry, Whitechapel – everyone is doing it. The internet has changed the world so significantly that we probably have not even come to fully grasp it yet, it has changed how we behave and how we perceive, regardless of whether I still prefer staring at an old-school canvas with paint splashing all over, this is what’s happening now, and embracing the changes and the phenomena would be the key, keep an eye on this space, we’ve got some exciting projects coming up in 2016!

 

Above was part of an exhibition presented by Carroll/Fletcher back in July 2015, an audiovisual installation brought together by Liu Chang & Miao Jing, soundtrack from Gan Jian.

Unfold is the second project that SPON has backed so far on Kickstarter and we would very much like to share this piece of news with you all. The exhibition starts on the 11th of March this year running through to mid-July.

And finally, a little bit about the artist himself, though never experienced any of his works in person it looks pretty damn amazing from what I can see, these ones below are a mere few examples of what the guy has accomplished, click here for his portfolio and, enjoy!

 

Until next time.
