ARS17: Hello World! is a survey of contemporary art focusing on the global digital revolution and its impact on our culture and economy, as well as human identity and behaviour. The exhibition in Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki brings together 35 artists from 13 countries representing three generations, from the ‘60s to the ‘80s. Many of the artists featured in the exhibition are post-internet millennials, who are digital natives more or less from the moment they are born. For them, the physical and virtual worlds are inseparable components of the same merged reality. In their world, digital technology is not an end itself, but a tool for creating, sharing and experiencing.
The ARS exhibitions are a series of major surveys of international contemporary art, organised since 1961. ARS17 is the ninth exhibition in the series, and the fourth to be held in Kiasma—the Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Finland.
