“Art & Algorithms celebrates art in the digital domain
with work that entertains and educates but will,
above all, take your breath away.”
What’s an International Curatorium? It’s a group of people who are trying to find the most interesting, unusual and unexpected digital art pieces that fulfill the requirements of the programming policy. And although this is a local festival, we have worked to recruit people with a different perspective from our own. And we will continue to pursue new brains and do our best to pick them in the future.
