In 2009 Manetas was invited by VENICE BIENNALE to create the first INTERNET PAVILION. In 2014, Rome's SWISS INSTITUTE hired Manetas to bring Swiss art to the Digital Age and Manetas came with the concept of ÑEWPRESSIONISM which he went on developing on Social Media using his techniques of OVEREALITY and METASCREEN.
in 2017, Manetas used DOCUMENTA 14 for his concept of MEDIOSUD. In 2018, Rome's MAXXI realized Manetas' INTERNET PAINTINGS, a three months performative exhibition. In 2019, his NEOUMILE Modus Operandi was hosted by Rome's MACRO. In 2021 MANETAS FLOATING STUDIO began. From 2023, Manetas is producing AI POLAROIDS.
