Co-Museum is proud to present Proof of Concept, a large-scale digital and new media exhibition, curated by Appetite and powered by Coinhako. Throughout history, artists have been some of the first to adopt and experiment with new tools, allowing their practices to evolve with and influence technology as they develop. In recent years, the rise of digital economies, coupled with the growing overlaps and intersections of artists and technologists, have led to an upsurgence of interest in digital and new media art, further accelerating how artists are exploring ways of art-making and sharing in a truly digital age. Proof of Concept brings together 25 artists whose works demonstrate how artists are utilising emerging technologies to break new grounds and reinvent traditional mediums, especially on and around the blockchain.
