Abstract

This exhibition, held at the Bevilacqua's historical gallery in St. Mark's Square, Venice, explores the history of pioneering generative art and its contribution to the broader field of contemporary art from the 1960s to the present. The artists who pioneered this work are sometimes known as The Algorists. The history is exemplified in the creative work of five international pioneers in the world of digital arts Ernest Edmonds (b.1942), Manfred Mohr (b.1938), Vera Molnár (b.1924), Frieder Nake (b.1938), and Roman Verostko (b.1929). Coming to the computer from completely different backgrounds and experiences - monastic life, jazz music,traditional painting, philosophy, mathematics, and logic studies -they began to experiment the creative use of the algorithm and computer code to construct their works and make art.
