Curated by artist Harshit Agrawal, Intertwined Intelligences presented work by six global artists working with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Deploying several experiments with modern day AI for artmaking, the six artists reflect on the AI art movement since it caught international attention around 2018. They are deeply embracing and actively engaging with the digital in their practice, not simply as a tool, but rather with its 'intelligence,' augmenting their innate scope of artistic expression.
Dreams.exe brought together emerging digital artists working across South Asia, who lent a glimpse into their imagined futures. Responding to Terrain.art’s open call, the artists included in the exhibition speak to the theme of ‘dystopia,’ drawing from the technocratic landscape that dominates our present against an environment of social isolation, informational overload, and urban and environmental degradation. The artists look to conditions of the digital present as we accelerate towards a future that seems to never arrive.
Terrain.art is a pioneering NFT art ecosystem that aims to be a one-stop resource for art in South Asia. Besides the platform’s educational, artistic, and archival initiatives, Terrain.art is committed to launching a new Open Marketplace to broaden the field of Digital art and NFTs in the sub-continent and beyond. Through curated exhibitions and programs we support a diverse range of creative practitioners including visual artists, designers, gamers, photographers, and filmmakers, asserting the need to expand the existing art ecosystem of the region. It also supports the artists and the art community with its Digital Marketplace that aims to be a one-stop place to explore the current digital art practices and the emerging field of NFTs.
Terrain.art began the Digital Marketplace program by hosting two NFT exhibitions titled ‘Intertwined Intelligences’ and ‘Dreams.exe’ in 2021, showcasing several experimental practices.
