Marc Glimcher, Co-founder of Superblue and President & CEO of Pace explains: ‘Artists conjure up extraordinary universes that provoke new ideas about ourselves and make us reimagine our relationship with each other and the world… Superblue represents a necessary evolution and disruption of the arts ecosystem, providing artists with the resources they need for realising their most ambitious ideas and engaging the public in the ways they envisioned, which is so integral to the work itself.’
Confirmed creatives for the Miami launch include Es Devlin, James Turrell and teamLab, with other big-name artists collaborating such as new media artist Jacolby Satterwhite, who creates real and imagined works through intricately detailed animations and live-action film.
Hans Ulrich Obrist, uber curator, a pillar of the Serpentine Galleries in London and Muse Dream Commission juror, and a passionate advocate of digital art considers the unique motion of digital storytelling through immersion: ‘Moving image has been trapped in this idea of a loop: whenever you show a film or video installation there are moments where it repeats. This has been disrupted by the emergence of simulation. They are digital living organisms more similar to a tree than a film. I think that produces a completely new art form.’
