We prepare, at Taxir, to launch our second virtual exhibition, Enchanted Territories, as a part of our partnership with Decentraland DAO. The exhibition is curated by our art curator and researcher Adele Jarrar, and features the works of six young Arab artists exploring new frontiers of digital art and NFT.
The exhibition introduces us to the works of Natalie, Mahmoud Ismael, Jacob, Malak Abdelwahab and Maryam Tareq. These works span several objects of interest and aesthetic approaches, including magical realism, post-work and noise.
For example, Mohammed Tayyeb’s (@oktayyeb) decolonial bodywork offers a powerful reflection on Palestine through a Talismanic approach that emphasizes repetition, centrality, and patterning. Meanwhile, Maryam Tariq’s (@thegolden_ratio1.6_) posthuman pieces push the boundaries of our understanding of the human form and its relationship to technology.
Enchanted Territories is a part of Taxir’s partnership with Decentraland DAO to bring the metaverse platform’s content closer to the Arabic audience. It is also Taxir’s and Adele’s second virtual exhibition after “Is the Machine Learning Art History?”, which was debuted last March as a part of this year’s Mozilla Festival.
You can visit Enchanted Territories through the week starting on Wednesday the 5th of April. You can also visit the exhibition’s page on Decentraland to set a calendar reminder. If you are not familiar with Decentraland metaverse, we made this video to help you with the onboarding.
