Media Art Globale (MAG20), a new media art exhibition focusing on technology and science, will return in a virtual format on Nov. 20 to 30 with the theme “Quantum Land”.

The exhibition will feature 21 artists from six countries and can be watched in 360-degree video streaming on its website.

Organized by Asian-European art platform Connected Art Platform, the exhibition is curated by its founder, Indonesian Mona Liem. 

“The exhibition is divided into five realms: Genesis, Enigma, Nexus, Magna and Master. Each realm will showcase a different theme reflecting today’s situation,” Mona said during a press conference on Tuesday.

Sixteen Indonesian artists, including Monica Hapsari, Dwi Putro, Eldwin Pradipta and Ady Setyawan, will join the virtual exhibition with five other artists from Australia, Germany, the United States, Belgium and Greece. The artists come from various backgrounds, such as music, coding, schizophrenic activism, architecture sound engineering and murals.
