TI CON ZERO
Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome
October 12, 2021 – February 27, 2022
Curated by Paola Bonani, Francesca Rachele Oppedisano and Laura Perrone.
Algorithms that use error as a system for generating forms, synthetic biological apparatuses, intuitive eukaryote microbes and artificial intelligences, territorial transformation processes, desertification, space exploration and Martian panoramas. The research of the artists involved in the T Zero exhibition is configured as a venue for debate, for discarding or overturning the themes and paradigms of our contemporary world: profiling and automation, the frontiers of medical genetics, global warming, ecological reconversion, forecasting models and spillover. Through direct collaboration with scientists and research institutes, and making the best possible use of the sweeping opportunities offered by technology, these artists transcend the current moment of applied research and using the imaginative strength proper to the work of art they configure unique and occasionally dystopic visions of the potential future.
