Tehran opens its doors to the fifth Annual Digital Art Exhibition at Mohsen Gallery from October 2 until October 9 with the theme of “The Language of the City”.
Aiming to open new horizons for digital arts in Iran, TADAEX featured sixteen artworks, seven audio-visual performances and four workshops by more than thirty local and international artists from countries such as Canada, Germany, Austria, Russia and the Netherlands as well as several talks by experts and directors of international festivals.
Themed for the first time, The Language of the City” has guided the curation of this year’s exhibition, which explored subjects such as urban soundscapes and the interaction between people, technology and the city. “Works are presented as site-specific installations, interactive installations and videos,” said the technical manager of Tehran Annual Digital Art Exhibition.
In TADAEX2015, distinguished instructors from Iran, Germany and Austria taught specialized software programs and their applications in digital arts. “The workshops respond to a shortcoming in our educational and university curriculum that do not yet offer a comprehensive program in digital arts,” said Amin Davaie, the executive manager of TADAEX, “They will provide artists with knowledge about software programs that are not taught anywhere else in the country.”
This year, Amber Festival joined the list of TADAEX’s distinguished partners, which already included the likes of NODE- Forum for Digital Arts and Ars Electronica
“This addition creates more opportunities for collaboration and exchange between Iranian and international digital artists and audience. It will help educate TADAEX’s executive team and will contribute to the knowledge and experience needed to raise TADAEX to the level of international importance,” said Davaie.
Founded in 2011, with the aim of opening new horizons for digital arts in Iran, Tehran Annual Digital Art Exhibition takes place every year around October in Tehran. For the past four years TADAEX has held four editions including exhibitions, performances, workshops and talks, organized by Amin Davaie as executive manager and Ehsan Rasoulof as director and owner of Mohsen Gallery. Curated through an open call and an artist exchange program with Ars Electronica, TADAEX showcases the latest trends and developments in digital arts by displaying the works of Iranian and international artists. The Goethe Institut, Austrian Cultural Forum, Embassy of the Republic of Germany, NODE, Ars Electronica, Amber Festival and TodaysArt are amongst TADAEX’s partners.
