ArtFutura 30 opens in Valencia

2 / 25 / 2023 – ArtFutura 30 Exhibition

On March 1st at 7:00 p.m., the ArtFutura 30 exhibition will open in the exhibition hall of the Polytechnic University of Valencia. This exhibition will take visitors on a journey through the evolution of art and digital culture since the last decade of the 20th century and its projection into the 21st century.

The exhibition holds many surprises, but one in particular is noteworthy – the first computer drawings created by the artist Jean Giraud (also known as Moebius). The UPV deserves credit for their impressive work in recovering these files.

The exhibition also includes a Virtual Reality experience where you can go through the thirty editions of ArtFutura. A work by Teresa Tomás, David Pérez López and Paco de la Torre.

The exhibition will remain open until April 5.

Hours: From 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

With the collaboration of New Art Foundation

ArtFutura in the Times of the COVID-19

15 / 05 / 2020 – ArtFutura in 2020.

Given the situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, ArtFutura temporarily suspends its presentations until further notice.

At the same time we have decided to focus on a new publication, which will cover these last thirty years and the evolution of digital creativity.

We’re also preparing a physical exhibition that, previously, will have a virtual presence.

More information hopefully coming soon.

As we wrote recently:

“In our hands is the design and construction of viable futures, livable futures, desirable futures for all.

And the gap between the world as it is now and as it could be is wider than ever.”
