Gabi Arrigoni of Culture Lab, curated a group show investigating the notion of the prototype as a new aesthetic model. From digital fabrication to speculative design proposals, the works on show were provisional, unstable and persuasive, providing suggestions for possible futures.
Nomadic Salon was a unique opportunity to meet Betagrams exhibition curator Gabi Arrigoni who discussed the exhibition’s central concept of the prototype with the exhibiting artists. Nomadic Salon provided a space to critically explore the range of experimental, creative art practices that are challenging the traditional status of the artwork as unique and finished object.
