The ID. ART:TECH EXHIBITION, first shown last year at Ca’ Foscari Zattere Cultural Flow Zone in Venice, explores ID as a phenomenon with a wide scatter of meanings – from the term in psychoanalysis (id) to the document that certifies one’s identity (ID) – from the forms of sociopolitical functioning of portraits of Soviet Nonconformism to the images of mass culture, aesthetics of ID cards, passport picture and social networks. This exhibition brings together a collection of experiential-based ideas and projects mediated by technologically progressive visualization methods, as well as paintings, drawings, photography, video, and sculpture. The exhibition is organized by CYLAND Media Art Lab in collaboration with the Kolodzei Art Foundation.
Apart from Alexandra Dementieva, the list of artists includes Martha Wilson, ORLAN, Faith Ringgold; Cyland MediaArtLab artists and interactive works by Anna Frants, Ludmila Belova, Elena Gubanova, Ivan Govorkov, Sergey Komarov, Alexey Grachev, Alexander Terebenin, a special selection of contemporary sound art from Cyland Audio Archive. Further there’s a selection from the Frants Family collection.
Opening Monday 2 March and running until 20 March 2020 at the National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York City
Open: Monday to Friday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Digital Icons, part of the Festival Transnumeriques #7, is an exhibition around the mutations and translations from one medium to another – from image to sign, image to given, image to network. How do contemporary artists look at the data that form the icons of today and tomorrow, objects of worship in a society that equals appearance to being?
Alexandra Dementieva shows Sleeper, an interactive video/sound AR installation about which you can find more info here (under Works).
