BUTT : Beyond Unique Transformation Twist presented by ArtGumi held from Saturday, July 27th to Sunday, August 4th

Beginning July 27, Chignitta will host a unique group exhibition by ArtGumi, an international non-profit Web3 creative community.

ArtGumi is a community of artists, engineers, developers, researchers, and people from diverse backgrounds who come together to build a new art world through the fusion of art and technology. It is built on friendship, learning new things and supporting each other through weekly online "picnic" sessions and Discord interactions.

Founded in 2021, ArtGumi members have been exhibited on giant digital billboards in cities around the world and have participated in digital art events in New York, London, Paris, Venice, Sydney, Dubai, Bangkok, Seoul, Jakarta, and Tokyo. Some works have been auctioned at Christie's Auction House and digitally collected by international art collectors.

Members of ArtGumi, who interact across national boundaries in the online and digital realms, have been meeting for more than six months on the theme of holding a "real exhibition in Osaka," and are challenging themselves to create new ideas of artistic expression that move between both the digital and analog realms.

Twenty-two creators from various countries including Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Germany will participate in this group exhibition, coming to Osaka from more than 10 countries. This will be an interesting art meeting where members who have been interacting with each other on Discord will meet in Osaka for the first time in real life.

At the venue, there will be "acrylic painting on canvas by digital artists," "QR code art that challenges how humans and computers perceive the same meaning of art," "3D art that blurs the line between physical and digital by inputting miniatures scanned by LIDAR into AI," and "Hybrid art using augmented reality. Hybrid art using augmented reality (AR)," "Cryptographic art that requires deciphering to understand its meaning," and other themes and expressions filled with intellectual curiosity will be lined up.

At the opening, there will be an exchange meeting with multinational creators at the venue, as well as presentations and workshops for creators interested in ArtGumi. Please come to Chignitta to experience art and ideas you have never seen before.

Statement by ArtGumi

Every artist is an extreme perfectionist when it comes to creating art. While perfectionism leads to high quality work, it can also limit the artist's ability to explore new possibilities and expand his or her horizons while having fun. This exhibition encourages artists to create work they have never tried before.

Some digital artists will create traditional art series, while artists with traditional backgrounds will create purely digital works. For those artists who wish to continue with digital art, many are also inventing new creative techniques, themes, and ideas, or using existing technology in unprecedented ways.

The artwork in this exhibition is very unique and not often seen in other traditional art galleries. They are created in new ways and not just in traditional ways. The exhibition is more inspirational and fun for those interested in how the world of digital art has evolved with new technologies in this time of "digital renaissance" while enjoying the concepts, ideas, and processes behind each piece.
