OBITION and Li Tang present: Analog to Digital, an online international group exhibition running from November 19, 2020 – January 31, 2021.
Since the life-altering invention of the camera, artists have been grappling with how to integrate “old” and “new” technologies into their studio practices. Over the last few decades, the Internet and digital image manipulation software have pervaded our daily lives, adding even more complexity to the ways contemporary art is made, interpreted, and shared globally. In presenting Analog to Digital, we seek to enter this conversation with new works from five artists who each combine hand- and computer-based influences to create unique visual solutions. Artists included are Thomas Valianatos (Greece), Citron (Italy), Claudia Ungersbäck (Austria), Heliodoro Santos Sánchez (Mexico), and Jen Yoon (Republic of Korea).
“We are delight to present the first group show of “obition”, Analog to Digital. The exhibition features a curated selection of innovative artists and works that highlight digital tool to broaden artistic perspectives during this historic era.
The central highlight of the exhibition is arguably one of the most important notions, “digital”, for contemporary artists. Many of the works in the exhibition have distinguished attributes based on use of digital tools. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the exhibition and sharing these exceptional pieces with you.”
– Ken Kim, Art Director, OBITION
“We are proud to announce the list of the selected artists that will take part in the international group exhibition Analog to Digital curated by OBITION and Li Tang. We received 218 artworks from all over the world and it was an incredibly difficult decision to narrow the list down to five artists. Thank you all for your participation and submissions.
Analog to Digital is the first collaboration international group exhibition by OBITION and Li Tang. We work together to share lights for artists and creatives. Please stay tuned for upcoming exhibitions and opportunities.”
