As a part of this exhibition, the “Digilogue Panel”, which was held with speakers using the digital world in the light of different disciplines, was also the first event of the platform of the same name. Today, aiming to create an interactive world throughout the year by taking the annual panel series tradition one step further, Digilogue brought together the world’s most important artists presenting works in the field of digital art at Zorlu Performing Arts Center on May 6, 2016.
With the promise of a new world that will inspire digital art enthusiasts, technology lovers and people who have embraced innovation as a lifestyle and will encourage them to make their dreams come true, Digilogue discusses how digital transformation can become innovative and creative when it interacts with art, architecture and fashion, with the very artists themselves who create works in this field.
