THE ARTS DOT 2021 ART EXHIBITIONS AND CREATIVE LAB FOR EXPLORING ARTISTIC INNOVATION AUGUST 26-29
The Arts Dot 2021 is a five-day event with workshops and art exhibitions and has the theme “Recovering with art, nature and virtual reality”. During these days, we will explore art, culture and technology. The Arts Dot would like to open up for a deeper understanding of how digitalization impacts artistic life. We want to create a dialogue with artists in an international environment to help make decisions and better understand the creative process explored by digital tools and services that can bring art both individually and as a group/community.
The uncertain future and the Covid pandemic isolation are reflected on us in traditional art, where the digital and virtual arena has quickly become more significant for both creators and audiences. The virtual space provides opportunities for us to experience arts in a new way. The challenge is to bring artists and technology together for creative and innovative processes to emerge. We want to create meetings where the participants can explore nature and art as a healing force after the pandemic through the new technologies.
On the 26th of August, there will be a full-day workshop where artists and tech companies will be matched. Then, on the 27th of August, a public presentation of works created during the cross-matching workshop will occur. Artists will get individual coaching through the process and digital material used for presentations and marketing. The purpose of competence development is to increase the artist’s individual awareness of new digital representation areas and create an international network and a cultural exchange.
Art exhibitions are organised in physical and digital formats and will be held from 25 to 29 August.
The Arts Dot welcomes artists working in art forms such as painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation art, textile art, performing arts, dance, music, digital art, video art, short films and manus.
We will visit cultural sites in Blekinge county and taste local food for the best cultural experiences.
We will make films during the event, take interviews before and after the exhibition. We want to create interaction between artists and the audience to create connections!
Participants are national and international artists from different disciplines and companies that offer new digital opportunities for artists to present their art.
The Arts Dot international event is organised by a non-profit association Konst I Blickpunkt. All proceeds from entry and participating fees fund project-related expenses to make the international artists meeting happen.
