“Concept Line” is the exhibition that will soon open in the spaces of the DAM Gallery, a pioneer gallery for its interest in digital art, to investigate the impact of plotter machines on the evolution of generative art, featuring plotter drawings by five renowned artists across generations.
The exhibition takes inspiration from the book “Tracing the Line”, edited by Luca Bendandi and Pierre Paslier, published by Vetro Editions in collaboration with Generative Hut, which showcases artworks by 100 artists from around the world. “Concept Line” explores the impact of plotter machines on the evolution of generative art. Plotter drawings serve as a bridge between the realms of digital and physical art, exemplifying a wide range of styles. Roger Vilder’s pioneering large-format work of over 4 metres from 1973 is part of the exhibition, which delves into the development of generative art through large, code-generated formats.
In anticipation of the opening of the exhibition, and for those who are not yet familiar with it, they can browse the Digital Art Museum online, an incredible resource founded in 2000 and updated in 2020 with artworks, biographies and selected texts of the most influential artists in the history of digital art from the 1960s to 2020, as well as chronologies of events and milestones in technology from the last 60 years.
The DAM Museum is a work in progress, constantly incorporating new content and rarely seen documents that tell the story of one of the most exciting periods in the history of art. A team of art historians and curators, led by Wolf Lieser, oversees the development of the online museum in its newest phase.
