In collaboration with Internet Freedom Festival, the 2016 Net Freedom Art Show is an itinerary collective international multidisciplinary contemporary art show that will be exhibited in New York, London, Valencia, Santiago de Chile, and Kaunas.
This exhibition has been curated by Jorge Cortell-Albert (Saint Charles Royal Academy of Fine Arts advisor, Libera Accademia Belle Arti Visiting Professor, Independent Art Curator, and free culture activist):
With this provocative, irreverent, and atypical exhibition I'm trying to spark a debate around some of the key points in the fight for internet freedom, such as: Advocacy, Community, Gender, Diversity, Media, Design, Best Practices, and Technology.
In that sense, all the pieces displayed embody multiple messages, even the heterogeneous collective of selected artists represent the diverse essence of the internet.
