ARKO Art Center was established in 1979 as a public exhibition space under the direction of Arts Council Korea. It has worked to fulfill its function as an exhibition-supporting institution, specifically geared towards emerging experimental artists. Through this, Arko Art Center has consolidated its public, as well as educational, role to construct a new paradigm for contemporary Korean art.
This year’s festival includes the Taiwan-Korea video exchange program. It aims at introducing the works of digital artists to audiences in both countries and to promote international exchange of Asian technology art. Through the ARKO Art Center’s Art & Technology Festival 2022 exhibition’s online screening platform “New Art City” and the Digital Art Center Taipei’s on-site exhibition, the festival achieves a simultaneous online/offline, cross-platform/cross-context connection. The Art & Technology Festival 2022, held by The Arts Council Korea (ARKO) Art Center, is an art festival that promotes international art exchange and research through the medium of digital art. It has been echoing the core concept of the Taipei Digital Arts Festival for many years.
