Art on Ploter (Digitally printed Works in the MCA Skopje Collection)

Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje

02. April – 30. May 2019

 

Plotter art, as a segment of computer art, is not a novelty in the contemporary art practice. We emphasize this fact, since many people believe that computers have become an important element of contemporary art since the 2000s, after personal computers became an inseparable part of everyday life. Through this, the thinking about the fact that it is not only a reproductive medium, but a particularly conceptualized independent work, is initiated. Also, computer art has a very rich history – computers were part of the art practice as early as in the fifties of the last century, when many artists and designers worked with mechanical devices and analogue computers. Although computers and the use of machines are actually related to design practices, there are many important contemporary artists who use computers in their artistic practices. One of the best ways to understand the role of computer art in contemporary art practice is to define and present the history of this art form.
