The fourth edition of the festival that combines visual arts, performance, music and gastronomy will be curated by Gonzalo Solimano; It will take place from Thursday the 30th of this month at Espacio 6, on the Costanera
“Add, not subtract: technology does not come to change the world of art, but to enhance it,” clarified Gonzalo Solimano, director of Artlab and the Argentine version of Mutek, when anticipating what the fourth edition of the Chandon Artground festival will be like, whose curatorship will be in charge. The festival that combines visual arts, performance, music and gastronomy will move again: this time it will be held overlooking the river at Espacio 6, on the Costanera.
From the 30th of this month until December 2, artists from different disciplines will present “mutant works”, according to Solimano's definition, that invite you to interact, experiment and share. In search of a narrative that “far from separating, brings together all languages”, they will encompass digital art, 3D design, immersive installations, video, dance and a collaborative action to generate a large mural.
“These creators, contrary to any dystopian story, could be the guardians of a new sensibility, which includes an illusion of the future,” adds the curator when referring to his chosen ones: Dano Marello, Melisa Zulberti, Teodófilo Mena, Diego Martínez - better known as “Ojos con Patas” -, Laureano Solis, Ignacio Bruno, Sofia Garazurret and Pablo Harymbat (alias Gualicho).
As in its three previous editions, held at Complejo C Art Media and the Ex Tiro Federal Argentino building, music will be part of the experience: Fernando Pulichino, who will be the “resident DJ” for the three days, will be joined by Pabels, Anita B Queen and Otto Bunge. The bands 1915, Kermesse and Plastilina will also play.
The multimedia artist, DJ and music producer Sebastián Seifert will intervene with projections on the stage that will be located on the first floor, where there will be gastronomy and drinks with Chandon by Grupo Bla (owners of Afrika, Arriba, Invernadero, Mero and Spritzza).
“Technology knew how to be used by essential people to expand the limits of imagination,” adds Solimano. This invitation to change our perspective allows us to see artificial intelligence as a technical expansion of consciousness and not as a threat. When virtual existence imposes itself as a sign of the times, art emerges and rebels against disconnection and generalized alienation.”
