The day on which we release the .ART x AllStars Digital Innovation In Art Award shortlist has come! This year, marked the 20th-anniversary edition of the DIIA and the fifth one with a prize sponsored by .ART, we’ve been pleased to receive so many intricate and innovative entries showing us just how bright and fruitful the merging of Art & Tech can be!
In the past couple of years the art world has been evolving quickly and gone through a massive shift with a wave of integration of technology into an old fashioned world. What this global and macro transition has shown us, is that art is as relevant as ever, adopting many forms and adjusting to the needs of artists, collectors, and amateurs alike. But this couldn’t have happened without the people, platforms and companies that have taken up the responsibility of bringing the nectar of creativity into the digital sphere, and supporting the life source of its creators while they do so. It is precisely because of the hard work of such people, platforms, and companies, who have made it their mission to improve our accessibility and safety online, and who offer multi-faceted support for creatives in the art community, that the merging between Art x Tech has proved seamless.
Today, we present you with the shortlist for the ‘Oscars of the Tech World’ – the Digital Innovation in Art Award presented by .ART. It is time to reveal the top ranks of the boundary-pushing, horizon-expanding, and creativity-inspiring projects that entered the fierce competition this year. The entries reviewed by our jury members have made them (and us by proxy) ever more thrilled to witness such large-scale innovations.
