Upstream Gallery is proud to present Mixed Feelings, a group exhibition featuring the new developments in the work of several artists* who explore, in various materials and techniques, the ambiguous attitude one can harbor towards technological advancements.

In a fast changing world, progression and regression go hand in hand. Where some of the artists in this exhibition explore the endless possibilities that new technologies bring, like AI and NFT, and celebrate those progressions, others are emphasizing the flipside of these developments. Think of the increasing alienation between humans and the natural world and the resulting climate crisis, exploitation in industrial labor, and digital exhaustion.

This exhibition invites you to explore the multi–dimensional and often contradictory experiences that arise from our relationship with technology, encouraging one to reflect and re-evaluate the meaning of human connection in the digital age.
