Today, we live in the 21st century, featuring such epochal words as the Fourth Industrial Revolution (ICT; Information, Communication, Technology), Posthuman, Hyperconnected Society, etc., which symbolize our era. How has art been changing and evolving along with such a drastic change of our times? 《Light, Art, Humanity》 aims to show, by way of Lecture Series in connection with this exhibition, how such key words as contemporary art, (new) media art, and global conceptualism in today’s art scene (in response to such drastic social change) are working together toward a future writing of the history of the early 21st century art.
In short, 《Light, Art, Humanity》 sought to invite artists who have been working in such a way that (new) media art and conceptualism are inseparable in the context of contemporary art, and who have been further concerned with dealing with both global and contemporary issues. By contemporary art is here meant ‘the art of our times’ that has art-historically replaced the aesthetic and formalistic mode of modern art and expanded globally ever since 1989 in particular. Contemporary art is referred to as the kind of art that puts to use all kinds of ordinary and technological media and deals with contemporary issues conceptually.
Therefore, (new) media art in 《Light, Art, Humanity》 takes as its means such mystical, aesthetic, and fantastic effects that advanced technological media bring fourth, and takes as its end those which lead to such new modes of thinking, perception, and attitude about our society, all in conjunction with conceptualism. All in all, 《Light, Art, Humanity》 shows that conceptualistic media artists have entered into the mainstream of contemporary art by dealing with today's complex though uniform human issues by means of diverse high-tech media in relation to LIGHT and its diverse strategies such as blindness, illumination, and un-concealment.
