Andy Rolfes, AOT’s newest contributor, reporting on Rhizome’s “Blockchain Horizon” conference on October 22. Organized by Rhizome’s Artistic Director Michael Connor.

The evening was also the opening of Pozzi’s exhibition of his latest works, Diffractions. One of our favorite Lucio quotes from the evening “We are in an epoch in which the art world is affected by a virus, which is the virus of explanation-itis, and I am attempting to revisualize visual art.”
AOT Project Salon received Pozzi first, in the Spring of 2015 and that summer Pozzi generously accepted an invitation to be a part of our 2015 Summer Exhibition, when we exhibited a piece from his Diffraction series.
