Fluorescent Smogg presents ‘The Dividing Line’. A cutting edge, immersive group show, that straddles the dividing line between the bricks and mortar of the real gallery world and the pixels, algorithms & vectors of cyberspace, featuring the world’s leading contemporary artists. From 21st May – 28th June the creative forces of Taku Obata, Mars 1, Sickboy, Ralph Steadman, Rick Griffin, Mat Eco, Antwan Horfee, Adam Neate, Rhys Lee, Gasius, Mudwig, Duncan Weston and Hello Collective plus special guests TBA will unite with Fluorescent Smogg to deliver a groundbreaking exhibition hosted entirely online.
Showcasing disciplines as diverse as Contemporary painting, Video Installation, Screenprinting, Woodblock Printing and the ancient art of Bronze Casting. Timed editions will be released weekly throughout the event. Eschewing the traditional gallery space has always been a part of Fluorescent Smogg’s DNA. For the past few months the development of a dream world in which to exhibit artists has been gestating. Now it’s time to open the doors. This cutting-edge showcase has been constructed entirely from the ground up using the latest in 3-D rendering technology to create a totally unique exhibition.
The result forces us to ask uneasy yet thought provoking questions: Are real spaces needed in a world so adept at 3-D rendering and deep fakes? & Can the traditional gallery experience be assimilated in a virtual world? As well as asking these thought provoking questions, The Dividing Line will also act as a force for social good, with 10% of the show’s sales being donated to Mind.
Speaking about why now the right time is to launch this project Fluorescent Smogg’s Charles Baird says: “Creativity held in contentious times has, through history, always been deeply inspiring. We want to bring something positive because of the situation, not despite it” Fluorescent Smogg has long held a reputation as a forward-thinking gallery and production house, working with the world’s leading contemporary and progressive artists for over a decade.
Featured artist, Sickboy added: “ We are fearless, diving headfirst into this world, colliding pixels with vectors and the real with the unreal, venturing untrodden paths in the hope to stimulate imagination and arouse conversation”
