Upstream Gallery

Upstream Gallery proudly presents Shifting Optics IV, the newest edition in the series of group exhibitions in which the impact of digital culture on the visual arts is shown. Initiated in 2014 as a signalling exhibition introducing a new generation of artists, Shifting Optics soon evolved into an extensive research into the rapidly evolving field of digital art, with sequential exhibitions in 2015 and 2016. Simultaneously, the urgency of digital art is more and more recognised by international institutions, as reflected in recent and current exhibitions such as Electronic Superhighway at Whitechapel Gallery, Human/ Digital: A Symbiotic Love Affair at Kunsthal Rotterdam and Sleep Mode. The Art of the Screensaver at Het Nieuwe Instituut, as well as in the recent joint acquisition of 17 works by contemporary digital artists by MOTI Breda and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
