The Bonnier Gallery Presents: Pioneer Digital Artist Yucef Merhi

On view through November 20 in Miami, the new exhibition “Yucef Merhi: Open” is presented by The Bonnier Gallery. “This new show will allow people to experience digital art that is of substance, as opposed to the speculative NFTs that seem to dominate that conversation,” says Grant Bonnier, the curator of this show and owner of The Bonnier Gallery. “Yucef Merhi has packed the equivalent of several lifetimes leading up to this critical mid-career point of his trajectory. This pioneer digital artist is poised at the leading edge of the technology and art.” Merhi was selected by MIT for its prestigious fellowship, the Open Documentary Lab. In 1985, when pioneer digital artist Yucef Merhi was only eight years old and growing up in Caracas, he reverse-engineered his ATARI 2600 and turned it into a programmable computer. He used the Atari Video
