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


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.
