Arca at the Intersection of Art and Technology for CIRCA 2022

“I hope you are compelled by these interpolated paintings of mine to take a moment and let the visual ASMR produce pleasure, allow for a moment of respite and solace, the experience of warped beauty.” – Arca

Alejandra Ghersi Rodríguez, known as Arca, is one of the most burgeoning experimental artists of our time. For the last decade, Arca has built a signature idiosyncratic style – navigating the intersection of sexuality, AI and science. In turn, she has transformed the very notion of what we consider pop music; establishing a vision, and perhaps even a genre of her own.

Having released eight studio albums starting with ARCA (2017), to the Kick Quintet (2020-2021), she went on to work alongside artists including Bjork, FKA Twigs, Kanye West and more. Arca’s creations mark a timestamp in the evolution of identity, creativity and humanity at large, fostering a new way of being for future generations and creatives.

Blurring the space between art and technology in her latest project, Arca is selling hand-signed prints for her CIRCA commission. The works combine handmade artworks with StyleGAN – a machine learning technology used to generate people, objects, and landscapes that have never existed – to build a new world.

Funds raised will be heading towards #CIRCAECONOMY – a circular model that funds CIRCA’s free public art program, creating life-changing opportunities for the arts and culture community it represents.

The works mark her debut emergence as a visual artist on the global stage. See for yourself at a screening in a city near you this month.

Prints can be purchased here.
