The Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto is exploring the questions “Is Art Alien?” and “What Is Art?” through the first Intergalactic Art Project using digital photography and Instagram. This project, presented by the AGO and Good Digital Culture, is an an extension of Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins’ art installation The piETa, which explores art, popular culture and belief systems. The Intergalactic Art Project “Is Art Alien?” examines fine arts and digital expression and the blurring of the two realms.
The public is encouraged to follow @agopopup on Instagram and join the #isartalien conversation by uploading photos or videos exploring the questions: “Is Art Alien?/What is Art?” Each week until May 23, one person will win a one-year membership to the AGO. All #isartalien Instagram posts are on the AGO popup site: isartalien.com. The uploaded images are here.
