Reportage on AL Jadeed
05/05 - 28/05
The show explores the manipulation of information and its effect on the aesthetic of art. The concept is based on the digital revolution, and carries the ramifications of a shift from traditional art forms to the digital medium.
This event features the award winning installation of Mohamed El Rawas (Lebanon) and major works by:
Ansen Atilla (Turkey)
Ammar Al Beik (Syria)
Ali Cherri (Lebanon)
Anahita Razmi (Germany)
Sheila Ribeiro (Brazil)
Jocelyne Saab (Lebanon)
Anne De Vries (Netherlands)
Ayman Yossri Daydban (Saudi Arabia)
The map of the show is based on the QR code, which consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background.
Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader application can scan the image of the QR Code to display text, contact information, connect to a wireless network, or open a web page in the phone's browser. This act of linking from physical world objects is known as a hardlink.
With the Calling the Shots series, Q is exploring the perception of photography and conceptual works. With the huge success of Architectural Photography (11/11) and Narrative Photography (03/03), The Digital Age promises to be our most ambitious exhibition to date.
