With Digital Icons, Philippe Franck and Jacques Urbanska (Transcultures) has curated an exhibition in a beautiful traditional museum exhibition spaces around mutations and translations of the various signs-images, data-images, networks-images which proliferate in our hypersphere and contaminate, for better and worse, our gaze and our imagination.

With ‘Digital Icons’ (as part of the seventh edition of the biennal Transnumériques), Transcultures, at the invitation of Central, (cultural centre of La Louvière) is offering an exhibition (+ associated events) in the museum exhibition spaces around mutations and translations of the various signs-images, data-images, networks-images which proliferate in our hypersphere and contaminate, for better and worse, our gaze and our imagination.
If we can usually say that the image is a representation, a setting in the present of an absent object, with the information revolution that we are experiencing, this actualization of a virtuality that is both always close together and always pushed back, explodes mutant and turbulent manner.
How do contemporary multi-creators decipher / divert / reinvent these multiple imaginary shifts? ‘Digital Icons ‘ (curated by Philippe Franck & Jacques Urbanska) offers us some visions (poetic, committed, offbeat, …), the fruit of various modes of artistic re-appropriation, which question and stimulate our critical gaze.
