As curatorial partners, Fakewhale has selected artists who stand out for their innovative contributions to contemporary creative culture to be presented within a series of press showcases ranging from the digital to contemporary art scenes, each designed to communicate each of their unique conceptual frameworks.

Among the press showcases curated by Fakewhale, there will be a series of solo formats spotlighting some of the leading voices in the digital art scene: Joe Pease, Ana Maria Caballero,  Leander Herzog and P1xelfool who will unveil a special collection soon to be released in collaboration with Fakewhale and objkt.com.

As well as “REFLECTIONS”—a collective press showcase that unites influential contemporary artists. This showcase broadens the conversation initiated by the solo press showcases, presenting a diverse array of artists who bridge digital technology with traditional art forms, underscoring the dynamic evolution of contemporary art in the digital age.
