From May 16 to May 21 the Peggy Guggenheim Collection hosted Art+Technology=School, an exhibition of works created by the students taking part in A Scuola di Guggenheim. This project is dedicated to the schools of the Regione del Veneto, in collaboration with the Fondazione Marino Golinelli of Bologna, and the educational social network ThinkTag Smart, to whom thanks.
The exhibition Art+Technology=School enriched the academic year’s educational program by comparing and contrasting Art and Technology, drawing on the various and diverse methods practiced by the teachers of each of these disciplines. The exhibition was organized according to multidisciplinary themes: the relationship between the human body and machine, light and electrical energy in art practice, and the role of new media and biotechnology in daily life and creativity.
The exhibition was characterized by the heterogeneity of the works exhibited, and featured an ambitious collective light installation using low energy light bulbs. Art+Technology=School was supported by OTT-ART, with thanks also to Impianti Elettrici Riato.
