4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in Sydney, Australia presents an exhibition 《The Invisible Hand》 featuring artists from Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Korea(Simon Denny, exonemo, Sunwoo Hoon & Mijoon Pak, Baden Pailthorpe). The exhibition explores current and projected complications and contradictions in the digital realm that increasingly oscillate between technological evangelism and skepticism. Against the dystopic information landscape, 《The Invisible Hand》 examines our ever evolving digital realm with careful focus on the East Asia region, a place at the bleeding edge of this technological frontier. Exploring the existential threat of Big Tech through a series of commissioned and recent works the artists each untangle the networked rhythms of our age, with careful allusion to science, public policy, economics and share price. Through these meditations the show presents artistic agitation to the arena of public debate—providing new perspectives, understandings and predications that enable us to better understand our place in this newly formed digital battleground.
