Beyond Fame
The Art of the Stars

18 August 2023-21 January 2024

Every star an artist? More and more successful actors, musicians and other famous people are engaging in artistic pursuits and going public with their work. Why do they seek further success in the art world? Or is art more about personal self-discovery? From 18 August 2023 to 24 January 2024, the exhibition Beyond Fame: The Art of the Stars presents works by national and international celebrities that offer a glimpse behind the façade of public figures, beyond their persona and fame.

AR Biennale 2023: Hybrid Nature

14 May–29 October 2023

Augmented reality art enables us to imagine new visions of nature: under the theme of Hybrid Nature, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf is staging the second edition of its AR Biennale from 14 May to 29 October 2023. Ten international artists and collectives have developed site-specific augmented reality (AR) works that can be viewed in Düsseldorf’s Ehrenhof and Hofgarten using an app. The digital works and their speculative, interactive approaches illustrate the various connections between nature, humans and technology and prove that nature is a hybrid.
