Latifa Echakhch participating at Verbier Art Summit 2019, Verbier, Switzerland

Organised in partnership with the museum director Jochen Volz — Pinacoteca de São Paulo, Brazil — the 2019 Verbier Art Summit took place on 1–2 February 2019 in Verbier, Switzerland around the theme: We are many. Art, the political and multiple truths.  In times of increasing uncertainty, we are in need of a deeper understanding of the multiplicity of narratives around us. Art has the potential to give voice to forgotten and silenced narratives, but also to envision entirely new possibilities. By bringing together artists, museum directors, activists and academics, the Verbier Art Summit engaged the art world in critical reflection on their social and political responsibilities. Together, we explored the political power of art. The 2019 Summit Edition speakers included artists Tania Bruguera, Latifa Echakhch, Rirkrit Tiravanija and others.

Adi Fluman and Miri Segal at CCA Tel Aviv, Israel

The Group Show  “Stumbling Through the Uncanny Valley: Sculpture and Self in the Age of Computer Generated Imagery” will be on show from 13 July 2019 until 7 September 2019 at the CCA Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv. We spend so much time looking at screens that show us images created by computers rather than cameras or humans. This new aesthetic filters through our daily lives and gives form to a new mode of visual representation. Following these premises, the exhibition examines the boundaries of this phenomenon through the work of 30 pioneering artists from around the globe. The exhibition title refers to the term “The uncanny valley,” that was coined in the 1970s to describe the unsettling feeling when androids (humanoid robots) or audio / visual representations of people closely resemble humans, but are not fully realistic or convincing. This dissonance is found today in computer-generated imagery (CGI) that now form our visual world and artists today are responding to and deconstructing the resultant visual landscape. The Exhibition includes the work of Adi Fluman and Miri Segal.
