A major digital art collection
Guy and Myriam Ullens are developing today a digital art collection which already turns to be a reference in the field, with some hundred major works, either made by pioneers from the 1960’s or emerging figures. This new collection counts with iconic works from founders of the Computer art movement such as Frieder Nake, Vera Molnar, Manfred Mohr, Harold Cohen; some masterpieces from acclaimed artists fof today’s digital art scene like Riyoji Ikeda, John Gerrard, Leo Villareal, Miguel Chevalier, Leonel Moura ; as well as creations from new figures coming from all over the world – some twenty citizenships are represented in the collection. The Ullens Foundation Project aims to support the production of works by digital artists, and to boost the promotion of a field of the arts not enough recognized yet. In a global digital age, the computer turns to become the number one art medium of the most creative and innovative artists of our time. This collection will be partly shown at UCCA Beijing this fall 2020 in the framework of the exhibition “Immaterial/Re-material: a brief history of computing art”. Other exhibitions are under process.
