Pia MYrvoLD to the ART FOR TOMORROW conference in Doha 12-15 March, invited by New York Times and Qatar Museums.
In a star packed conference program, MYrvoLD will give a presentation about her work with digital art strategies of the last 25 years.
Pia MYrvoLD is an artist and futurist with a long merit list of innovative strategies merging media into what she calls the new hybrid art forms.
With the title HYBRID LOVE, she revisits central ideas though her work history, with interactive art interfaces such as, Cybercouture 1996, Female Interfaces; Centre Pompidou 2004 and Explorations in Landscape – Lars Hertervig; Stavanger Art Museum; 2007 where MYrvoLD first introduced a duality between real and virtual (VR) worlds.
The immersive and interactive solo show ART AVATAR, Centre Pompidou 2014 will be presented in details as well as the series of smart sculptures,WANDS launched in 2015.
In the final section of her talk, MYrvoLD introduces her latest project Syn-Energies, large scale sm-art installations that harvest energy though sun, wind or water. Created as an interdisciplinary art model, the project is designed to instigate local growth in industry, education and the development of innovative business models important for cultural identity, tourism and and economic growth.
Placing art in the initial phase of urban planning and municipal or regional developments, MYrvoLD wants to show that art is important for successful transitions in the challenges of the future, where the movements will be integrated as one movement and not, as we often seem where the art serves as decorations in the last link.
MYrvoLd’s entry in the first day program, is followed by Jeffrey Deitch, the famous berømte New York Gallerist and recently director of the LACMA museum in Los Angeles. Among the star packed program we find Jeff Koons, Marina Ambramovic and the curator for the London Serpentine Gallery, Hans Ulrich Obrist.
