NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire - Unfinished, a firm dedicated to promoting the digital age, announced today that nine international arts organizations have formed the Un finished Camp, which is
Unfinished Camp was led by a civic entrepreneur Frank McCourt and was created by the curator and artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries Hans Ulrich Obrist and writer and cultural strategy advisor Andrs S Unfinished Camp provides a global platform for young contemporary artists to explore the intersection of art and technology and collectively imagine thriving and equitable civil society for the digital age. The alliance was developed with the conviction that artists have a valuable role to play in shaping our collective digital future, and the modes of public engagement in it.
The exhibition of Unfinished Camp's inaugural exhibit will debut at the House of Electronic Arts on September 23 and 24th at The Shed. This latter exhibit is held during the first of an unfinished Live two days, where influential tech, impact and culture leaders will gather on the future of digital technology and accelerating solutions for a more ethical and equitable internet.
"I believe strongly that to tackle big societal challenges like fixing our technology, we need problem-solvers from different backgrounds and disciplines working together," said McCourt, who founded the ethical technology initiative Project Liberty. "I'm delighted that artists and organizations are joining forces to create a digital future that serves the common good."
The founding partners of Unfinished Camp include organizations who represent the forefront of visual art, digital innovation and technology across the world. Among the founding partners are: LUMA Arles in Southern France, Piv in So Paulo, the Serpentine Galleries in London, UCCA Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, The Zeitz
In order to start the initiative, each institution invited three young artists to produce a short video of the question: how does it start? What's the future of art in a decentralized world? The final twenty-seven digital works will be produced by the company in the second quarter of the year. In addition, at Unfinished Live on September 24th, Emma Enderby, Senior Curator of The Shed, will moderate a conversation among some of the artists involved, including Thero Makepe of Botswana,
"It has never been more urgent to add the voices of artists to important conversations about creating more ethical technology," said Obrist and Sznt. "We see this alliance as an opportunity to demonstrate new ways of working in the arts, with arts organizations collaborating across the borders and professional boundaries to promote new ideas and action."
Unfinished Live will showcase the exhibit of the Uncomplete Camp exhibit, as part of a larger hybrid in-person and virtual event Sept. 23-24 at The Shed in New York. Members of the public can purchase tickets online to access the complete Unfinished Live event.
