N3krozoft Ltd Exhibition at DUDAC Draws 15,000 Emirati Visitors So Far

N3krozoft Ltd ?s DUDAC SHOW MEETS WITH GREAT SUCCESS

The exhibition "N3krozoft Ltd: 1904-2007", on view through 27 January 2008 at the Digital Art Centre in Dubai (DUDAC), has enjoyed extraordinary interest among Emirati art lovers since opening on November 1st.

This show is the first institutional solo-exhibition of N3krozoft Ltd in the United Arab Emirates, as well as the first major survey since 1992 of the international art collective. Building upon a lineage of continuous projects reaching back to the early days of the computer age, the group has produced artworks in a variety of media, encompassing live visual performance, public art, and critique of software and its relationship to contemporary culture and politics.

This major survey provides an unprecedented opportunity to reassess their ambiguous work, which is caracterised by its obsessive subject matter and experimental approach to media and techniques. It also features a number of new works made specially for the exhibition.
