METAMATRIX ARTLAB IS AN EXPERIMENTAL PLATFORM FOR INTERACTIVE PROJECTS, FOUNDED BY MULTIMEDIA ARTIST JEAN-MICHEL CRAPANZANO. BASED IN THE NETHERLANDS, IT WORKS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH INDIVIDUALS, GALLERIES, ART CENTERS, AND MUSEUMS TO DEVELOP AND ORGANIZE NEW MEDIA-ORIENTED ART PROJECTS, INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITIONS, CONFERENCES, WORKSHOPS, AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS.

 

THE MISSION OF THE FOUNDATION IS TO STIMULATE CITIZEN’S PARTICIPATION WITHIN AND ACROSS COMMUNITIES BY CREATING AMBITIOUS, COMPELLING PROJECTS AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART AND SOCIAL CHANGE. WE BELIEVE THAT ART PLAYS AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN STRENGTHENING SOCIAL FABRIC, AND THAT THIS IS ESSENTIAL IN THIS TIME OF CRISIS: SHARING AND ENVISIONING NEW PARADIGMS FOR THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY THROUGH ART.

 

Metamatrix Artlab is glad to announce it's Dutch cultural ANBI status accreditation: Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling.

ABOUT ART PROJECTS / CONCEPTS AND DEVELOPMENTS OF SOCIALLY ENGAGED ART PROJECTS COMBINING SCIENTIFIC RESEARCHES AND SOCIAL ENGINERING, THROUGH FILM, VIDEO, 3D MAPPING/ANIMATIONS, PHOTOGRAPHY AND INSTALLATION IN THE OPEN SPACE. WE WOULD LIKE TO DEVELOP UTOPIAN ART PROJECTS REFERRING TO THE CONCEPT OF FUTUROLOGY: PROPOSE ALTERNATE HISTORIES, IMAGINING NEW RULES OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT, ECONOMIC END ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY AND IT’S APPLICATION ON HUMAN BEHAVIOR, BIO-TECHNOLOGIES, EXO-PLANETS, VALUES AND TRADITIONS. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO DEVELOP COUNSELING ACTIVITIES AND PROPOSALS THAT ARE NOT LIMITED TO URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE, CULTURAL AWARENESS, SUSTAINABILITY, PRODUCT DESIGN, AND POLITICAL ACTIVISM IN ORDER TO PREVENT OR CATALYZE DRAMATIC SOCIETAL CHANGES. FINALLY, WE WOULD LIKE TO DEVELOP POSSIBLE SCENARIO’S AND URBAN STRATEGIES FROM A CITIZEN’S PERSPECTIVE, ACTIVELY INVOLVED DURING THE PROCESS OF CREATION AND STEPPING STONES THAT MIGHT LEAD TO ACTIONABLE ALTERNATIVES.

ABOUT WORKSHOPS AND ART EDUCATION’S PROGRAMS: “LEARNING BY DOING”/WE BELIEVE THAT ART EDUCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL WAY TO LET PEOPLE BECOME AWARE OF THEIR ENVIRONMENT: MORE CONSCIOUSNESS ABOUT WHO WE ARE AS CITIZENS. THEREFORE, ART EDUCATION INCREASES RESPONSABILITY AND PERMIT POSSIBLE CREATIVE ANSWERS ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY, CONFLICTS AND SOCIAL ISSUES.WE WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE DIALOGUES BETWEEN CITIZENS, SCHOOLS, HEALTH OR HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATIONS AND CONNECT THEM WITH INSTITUTIONS SUCH AS MUSEUMS, ART CENTERS, UNIVERSITY, LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES DEVELOPING RESEARCHES ABOUT FUTURE AND ALTERNATIVES SOLUTIONS: BIOTECHNOLOGIES, GENETIC, SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.

ALL WORKSHOPS ARE NEW MEDIA’S ORIENTED.

ABOUT CURATORIAL PROJECTS AND EXHIBITIONS, CONFERENCES AND LECTURES

WHAT DOES “METAMATRIX” MEAN ?

META: ARISTOTLE'S META-PHYSICS ENUNCIATES CONSIDERATIONS OF NATURES ABOVE PHYSICAL REALITIES, THE USE OF THE PREFIX WAS LATER EXTENDED TO OTHER CONTEXTS BASED ON THE UNDERSTANDING OF METAPHYSICS TO MEAN "THE SCIENCE OF WHAT IS BEYOND THE PHYSICAL".

MATRIX: A SITUATION OR SURROUNDING SUBSTANCE WITHIN WHICH SOMETHING ELSE ORIGINATES, DEVELOPS, OR IS CONTAINED
