International Art Exhibition for New Technology
705 artists from 78 different countries submitted a project for the New Technological Art Award (NTAA) ’19. The exhibition of the 20 selected projects that have the chance to win three awards, will be held from 2 to 24 November.
During the last few years, Zebrastraat Ghent has developed into a stimulating knowledge centre with a strong interest in art. Every two years Zebrastraat organises a biennial called update_, linked with the New Technological Art Award (NTAA) contest, which tries to fill in a gap in the mainstream art world, by paying attention to the technological developments that drive our global culture. NTAA selects and presents creations in which the culture-forming role of technology occupies a central place. Low or high tech, intuitive or experimental, the creations always draw our attention to actual innovative trends. The exhibition of achievements of the selected winners is a compass that orients you to the relevant temporal and resilient use of technology in the artistic sector.
