Joyous Dystopia is a group exhibition that features artists who subtly distort, poeticize and comment on their readings, interpretations and postings of everyday life. Curated by David Gryn, founder of Daata Editions, the pioneering online platform that commissions and exhibits digital and new media works as downloadable editions, Joyous Dystopia comprises a selection of work by artists Bob Bicknell-Knight, Jeremy Couillard, Keren Cytter, Elliot Dodd, Anaïs Duplan, Rosie McGinn, Eva Papamargariti and Scott Reeder. The exhibition launched the museum’s satellite, virtual gallery exclusively on Instagram @TheBassSquared

The Bass² (@TheBassSquared) is The Bass Museum of Art’s satellite virtual gallery hosted exclusively on Instagram, exhibiting art native to the digital realm. Launched in summer 2019, The Bass² was made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Center Foundation. The Bass² is a free and publicly accessible virtual exhibition space, modeled after a traditional (physical) museum experience. The project presents art in direct and unmediated ways as an extension of the brick and-mortar museum, uniting artists who work in digital media with audiences from around the world who engage with digital platforms in their daily lives.
