Five pioneers of algorithmic art in Venice

10 Nov 18

"Algorithmic Signs"

was the title of an exhibition at Galleria di Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy. It showed works by Ernest Edmonds, Manfred Mohr, Vera Molnár, Frieder Nake, and Roman Verostko who, in various styles, spread out from the first beginnings in 1965 up into the 1980s, contributed to algorithmic art. They all still continuing doing so. The exhibition took place from 20 October to 3 December, 2017.

Francesca Franco, who curated the show, has put together a video about the show that you can now find under

Algorithmic Signs (10:45 minutes)

I like the fact that this exhibition used my term "algorithmic sign" as its announcing title – a title that is probably still a bit strange to most people, if not even alienating.
