definition of the 2008 indie pavilion at move the new media digital show:

the indie pavilion will open with the new media digital show 008 and will illustrate the boldest side of the digital art market

digital art is usually found at the periphery of commercial art but our show intends to find and put together a good selection of these types of works. at the indie pavilion they would be under the same conditions as the rest, on a commission basis. this income may cover the costs of putting them on show but under any circumstance would these works be undersold as it would be unfair not only to the artists but also to the galleries present at this digital art market.

we will:

have good samples of digital art which otherwise wouldn’t afford to be present. offering then a representative selection of what’s
cooking digital art.

give an opportunity to the artist to sell

the indie pavilion will exhibit works entirely digital, that is, those that use the new media in a no banal manner, photo(info)praphy,
video(info)graphy, code.art (local or online, also called net.art), robot-junk, environments and presence.

the indie pavilion will be located in a specific area inside the digital art market and for the same period of time as the move show; from 13 to 16 november 2008.

artists will be able to show their work if they have been invited by the move’s curator nilo casares, or have been selected by him from the applications received.

with this official announcement we are trying to sound out the current state of digital art in its different representations. indie
pavilion aims to show samples of what is being produced and in no way should be seen as a contest. the selection process endeavours not to qualify but to classify. there will be plenty of participants; their works will be a reflection of how digital art stands nowadays in all its aspects. it plans to show not only what is in the current digital art arena but also the direction it is taking.
