Variation: Women at Parity
Nov. 15-25 Paris Website
Every year, Dominique Moulon, curator of Variation, discovers new talent. This
year, among the 42 artists on show, 24 are new (or at least, were unknown to
diccan up to now).
A striking constatation: 10 among these 24 are women. That contrasts with the proportion of 18% women which has been quite constant since the 1970's.
The selected artists (the links on new digital artists are not presently operational).
We will develop our analyses in the days to come, specially after the opening (Nov. 14) and the Algorists guided visit (Nov. 22).
Two points to be looked-at:
- trend towards the post-digital (notably the digital world as topic (much) more than a tool, a process
- link with the Moulon's book.
Get all the artists and the works they presented in the catalog. They are not all digital artists properly. Let's list here those which we deal with in diccan:Samuel Bianchini Multimedia
