[A N T I]M A T E R I A
By: Doreen A. Ríos
[Anti]materia emerges from the need of consolidating an informative platform as well as an exhibition space that enfolds the artistic creation based on new media performed by Latin American artists, curators and art promoters.
It proposes the creation of an intersective space for debate, home of an intangible archive which solidiﬁes data for it's consultation. It also focuses in promoting collaborations with international exponents with the idea of making the platform grow in an holistic way as well as creating links between creators.
The future of [Anti]materia relies on the constant addition of temporary exhibitions as well as the creation of a genealogy of artists, curators and art promoters focused in digital art and new media. All together with constant collaborations with diverse international creators.
This project bets on the easy access to information for future investigations surrounding this topic and its inﬁnite possibilities.
