unReal. the Algorithmic Present，an exhibition curated by ZHANG Ga and Sabine Himmelsbach, co-presented by Chronus Art Center (CAC) and House of Electronic Arts Basel (HeK), supported by Pro Helvetia Shanghai, Swiss Arts Council and Department for Culture and Education of the German Consulate General Shanghai, opened on November 11 2017 and will be on view till January 21, 2018.
unReal. the Algorithmic Present is an exhibition that attempts to confront the digital present through the very means of technological intervention both as critical examination as well as alternative prospects. The twenty-three works in the exhibition by international artists underscore the often-hidden materiality of bits and bytes, bringing to the fore the algorithmic processes that constitute our digital present.
