The exhibition at the Scoletta dell'Arte dei Tiraoro e Battioro during the 60th Venice Art Biennale is interactive and blends past and future, tradition and innovation, through works by renowned digital artists combined with the Grand Masters of classical Art.

Artists: The exhibition features works by internationally renowned artists such as digital art pioneer Shu Lea Cheang, winner of the LG Guggenheim Prize 2024, MAOTIK, Funa Ye, Andrea Meregalli, philosopher artist Francesco D'Isa, and the collective Accurat. These artists are recognized for their contribution to the intersection of art and technology.

Historic Venue: The exhibition will take place at the Scoletta dell'Arte dei Tiraoro e Battioro, the headquarters of the 18th-century artisans' guild, which traditionally produced gold threads and leaves. This place of art and history is closely connected to the concept of the exhibition, which proposes an interactive journey through digital craftsmanship, creating a link with the Art of the past by actively engaging the audience.

Interactive Experience: Spectators will be engaged through interactive installations such as "You Are Making Art" by Andrea Meregalli and "Errors" by Francesco D'Isa. These works challenge traditional conceptions of art and artificial intelligence, offering a stimulating experience.

Historical-Artistic Reflection: The exhibition explores the relationship between digital art and art history, offering a critical look at aesthetic conventions. Works by past masters will be exhibited alongside contemporary ones, promoting a deep reflection on the evolution of art over time.

The exhibition is a project of TAEX, a digital art platform that is building a new community of collectors shaping the future of art. They showcase and co-produce works by prominent artists with critical acclaim, selected by qualified curators. After their trip to Art Dubai, now a new event in Venice 

Special projects such as "Vera (TAEX AI)" and "TAEX Card Game" offer a unique educational experience, allowing visitors to interact with digital art in absolutely innovative ways.

Artist ( Description ): 

Shu Lea Cheang is a Taiwanese-American artist and director, who works with net art, multi-player participatory performances, video and installation. Having a broad background in artistic activism, her work promotes freedom of expression and criticizes political oppression, technological and environmental issues. As a multimedia artist, he gained recognition for his piece of net art BRANDON (1998-1999), the first commission of web art of the Guggenheim Museum. One of Cheang’s most recent and extraordinary commissions is the 3x3x6 solo exhibition for the 58th Venice Biennale (2019), where the artist represented Taiwan.

Funa Ye is a Chinese artist who explores the relationship between the realities of everyday life and the perceived connection between authority and social life. His practice studies the different power structures, ethnic groups and the imaginary space of propaganda that strives for the concept of 'perfection' within an ideological system and utopian landscape. She has been a resident artist at the K11 Foundation (Hong Kong), Pro Helvetia Swiss Council 2018 Studio Residency (Bern) and has exhibited her work internationally.

MAOTIK (Mathieu Le Sourd) is a French digital artist, who creates work at the intersection of art, science and technology - immersive environments, interactive installations, digital architectural sculptures and audiovisual performances. MAOTIK uses generative tools to create a mirror synergy between the real and the digital world, codifying algorithms inextricably inspired by nature. Create audiovisual sculptures that can breathe, move and change shape; a blend of nature, science and technology that brings unique and unrepeatable experiences to the audience. His works have been exhibited at Art Basel, Frieze London, FIAC Paris, British Film Institute and recently at the Digital Art Fair in Hong Kong with TAEX. 

Francesco D'Isa is an Italian philosopher and artist. He has exhibited his works internationally in galleries and contemporary art centers. He debuted with the graphic novel "I." (Nottetempo, 2011) and has since published essays and novels with renowned publishers such as Hoepli, effequ, Tunué and Newton Compton. His best-known works include the novel "La Stanza di Therese" (Tunué, 2017) and the philosophical essay "The Absurd Evidence" (Edizioni Tlon, 2022). Most recently, he published the graphic novel "Sunyata" with Eris Editions in 2023. Francesco is editorial director of the cultural magazine "L'Indiscreto" and contributes with writings and illustrations to various magazines, both in Italy and abroad.

Andrea Meregalli is an Italian artist and architect. He deals with design at different levels. He has always developed research projects through painting, drawing, printing techniques, digital technologies and the creation of unique books. He worked for years without showing anything, then, almost by accident, he processed his pain and began to make his work public.
