Robots: a futuristic, rusty, adorable, misunderstood, man-enslaving Group Show
May 6th - June 28th 2016
Blank Space is a creative ambitious space that works to bridge the many gaps in the art world today. From bringing art to an accessible to showing underrepresented art forms in our gallery, Blank Space has become instrumental in a healthier and stronger art world in Oslo.
However, in our previous 3 years of exhibitions we would focus on either solo exhibitions, such as our current exhibition of Neil Ross (UK), film and animation artist for the past 30 years, or we have tackled an entire genre of art, such as our annual exhibition The Dirty Art: A Celebration of Norwegian Street Art. But - we have never offered a group exhibition which examines a single topic or theme.
We also look forward to working with our Hackerspace friends to invite the large maker movement into this event. (Technology can be art, too!)
The word robot has become synonymous with the word future. Where do machines (sentient or not) fit into your idea of the world?
This show is intended to be the first sentence in a larger discussion. Your work is by no means singularly responsible for having an overbearing message, but combined with hundreds of other works of art, suddenly a conversation begins.
What word fits with your definition of robots?
Roomba? Terminator? Self- Driving cars? 3D printing? Drones? Ipad? Tilt brush? Boston Dynamics?
“It's your fiction that interests me. Your studies of the interplay of human motives and emotion.”
― Isaac Asimov, I, Robot
