Matthew Attard

Matthew is strongly interested in situating his work within the realm of contemporary drawing. His interests include: the extension of the line within 3D spaces, the phenomenology of perception, datafication, drawing as a cyborg in dialogue with technology, the challenging of the use of data and technology, and provocations about how we represent ourselves in this day and age. In 2018 he obtained his Masters by Research degree from the Digital Arts Department, University of Malta. In 2009 he moved to Venice and collaborated with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the USA Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. His work has been exhibited in Venice, Rome, Valletta, Genoa, London, Beijing, Valletta and Los Angeles among other cities. In 2014, Galleria Michela Rizzo invited him for the bi-personal show In Between/Viewpoints, together with artist Rashad Alakbarov. In 2017 he was selected for the 3rd edition of the Le Latitudini dell’Arte Biennale, at the Palazzo Ducale, Genoa. In 2018 he was awarded the Under 30 Euromobil prize at ArteFiera, Bologna. In 2019 he was selected for a third time to exhibit during Ten Artists to Watch at LACDA, Los Angeles Centre for Digital Arts. During the same year, he was also present during the collective show Soglie e Limiti, curated by Elena Forin at Galleria Michela Rizzo, Venice. In 2019 he was selected to participate in Artissima Telephone at the OGR spaces in Turin, taking place during the Artissima Art Fair.
