Created by the V&A

About

Since the 1960s, artists and programmers have used computers to create prints, drawings, paintings, photographs and digital artworks.

‘Chance and Control’ draws on the V&A’s rich international collection of computer-generated art and includes work by pioneering digital artists such as Frieder Nake and Georg Nees – who produced some of the earliest computer art – through to the younger generation of artists practicing today.

It offers viewers the rare opportunity to trace the chronological development of digital art, exploring how aspects of chance and control shaped the creative process and produced vivid and original artworks.

The exhibition is part of Firstsite’s focus on digital culture as explored through our 2019/20 exhibitions programme.
