WHAT: International interdisciplinary artist collective, the Extended Reality Ensemble (XRE)
are delighted to announce they will be hosting the New York Festival Garden for this year’s Ars
Electronica Festival at Culture Lab in Long Island City. Co-curators are NFT gallerist Vizmesh
and the artist collective Never Knows Better. Dedicated to exploring the intersection between
art, technology and society, this year’s theme is “A New Digital Deal”, subtheme “A Portal”,
exploring the intimacy and accessibility of technology. How can we cope with the digital
developments, get a grip on our problems, and at the same time prevent the increasingly
obvious advances of powerful political forces? More than just making the most of the hand we’re
dealt, how do we take control of and maybe even shape the deal?
