About New Art City

New Art City was started in March of 2020 as a reaction to the widespread closure of art spaces and cancellation of exhibitions as a result of the global pandemic. Founded by digital artist with contributions by Benny Lichtner and Martin Mudenda Bbela, New Art City is a small team of artists and creative developers building the best virtual space for online exhibitions.

How We Curate

We believe in new art, and the value of bringing new people, new ideas and new technologies into the art world. In order to do that, all exhibitions curated by New Art City prioritize:

  1. Showing work from internet artists who are underrepresented in the art world, e.g. due to their race, gender, sexuality or aesthetic.
  2. Showing work from artists who are new to the art world, and may have never been in an exhibition before or never had a solo show.
  3. Showing work from artists who will push the limits of technology and the medium to create a new kind of exhibition that can only be realized in virtual space.
