*unplace** exhibition** - networked art: places-between-places*.
*19th june to 19th november* at *unplace.org/exhibition*
The *unplace *virtual exhibition constitutes an important outcome of the
*unplace* research project. *Curated by António Pinto Ribeiro and Rita
Xavier Monteiro*, with the collaboration of Helena Barranha, Susana S,
Martins and Raquel Pereira, the exhibition is promoted by the Gulbenkian
Next Future Programme <http://www.proximofuturo.gulbenkian.pt/>.
The *unplace* exhibition brings together Internet and web-specific artworks
in which the tensions between real and virtual spaces are highlighted
through online practices ranging from geopoetics, fiction and hacktivism to
participatory projects in networked environments. It includes: 16 artworks,
by artists from 12 different countries, organised around 2 thematic tours.
Among these 16 artworks there are: 11 Internet Art projects + 1 new version
of an existing web-specific project + 4 entirely new *unplace* web-specific
*The place is nowhere at all and yet everywhere. *
*These works are in permanent traffic and this is one of the great open
questions of this 'art form'. They may appear in the middle of the flow of
other images, data, graphics, emails, retained or sticking filters, subject
to the accessibility protocols or coded, and can be accessed in visual
infrastructures or coupled to the real. This versatility puts these works
in a permanent state of mutability and hence is part of its fascination and
