Wednesday the 14th and Thursday the 15th of June 2023, “Proof of Talk” will take over the ground floor of the the Musée des Art Décoratifs in Paris, with a two-days programme dedicated to featuring brilliant voices in the Web3 ecosystem and promoting significant exchange amongst them and the audience.
The programme includes an exhibition, At first glance – À première vue, featuring the work of twelve of the most accomplished artists working with the digital medium.
The Web3 exclusive Summit will gather over 95 industry leaders to find concrete ways to restore trust in the Web3 industry in collaboration with thought leaders, CEOs, founders, influencers, legal experts, and regulatory authorities. In countertendency with the usual Web3 summits, which are often so crowded that energies and resources disperse, “Proof of Talk” is limited to less than 1000 participants.
Along with fostering quality conversations and networking amongst attendees, the event also aims at sparking interest towards the new trends in digital art, which are hereby not only showcased but also presented within a curatorial frame.
In today’s digital age, with the rise of smartphones, social media, and instant gratification culture, we are constantly bombarded with an overwhelming amount of information from various sources. This boundless influx of information can sometimes make it difficult to allocate time and attention to art, especially to that which may require a slower and more contemplative approach to fully appreciate and understand.
Moreover, at events in which the primary focus is not art, the tendency is to browse the exhibited pieces with a quick and often distracted glance.
Curated by Luisa Ausenda, founder of Studio Leggero, At first glance – À première vue is an exhibition which stands out as an encompassing and thought-provoking digital art experience that demands a sound viewer engagement.
This show encourages the participants of “Proof of Talk” to deepen their viewer experience by going beyond what they see at first glance to intake the works’ full value and scope. Each artwork exhibited in this stunning venue in the heart of Paris is either deeply conceptual, tackling topics such as gender, equality, and speculation, or remarkably innovative tech-wise.
The twelve artists featured in this show (Addie Wagenknecht, Andrea Bonaceto, Andrés Reisinger, Auriea Harvey, Benoit Challand, Hermine Bourdin, Rafaël Rozendaal, Sarah Meyohas, Skygolpe, Sofia Crespo, Trevor Jones & Wonderkatzi) make profound statements through their work and use the blockchain and the new technologies in such an inventive way that they are amongst the first ones in their medium to do so.
Digital art encompasses a wide range of mediums and formats, including virtual and augmented reality, Artificial Intelligence, generative art, programmable art, recombinant art, and more. Most of the latter are showcased in At first glance – À première vue, thus challenging the attention span of the viewer, who is stimulated to understand the processes that concur in the creation of the artworks.
Following the inspiration from which “Proof of Talk” sparked, to create an event in which the conversations and exchanges happening within and beyond the programme would be meaningful and capable of fruitful consequences, At first glance – À première vue also seeks to activate significant dialogues and reflections. These interactions will focus on the exhibited artworks, as well as on the blockchain, which serves as the ultimate creativity boost for many of the featured artists.
