neo: is pleased to present a pioneering exhibition of contemporary art, which explores the impact of technology on our daily physical and social environment and on visual culture in general.

About

The original meaning of the word 'interface' is a boundary between two entities, such as a cell wall or human skin, but is now most commonly associated with the means of communication between ourselves and the technology we depend on. Digital interfaces have become such an integral part of our lives, that they are often taken for granted. By focusing on ‘interfaces’ as the subject, rather than purely as conveyors of information, the exhibition aims to initiate a dialogue about the ways they represent reality and directly influence our understanding of the world.

The exhibition has been organised and curated by three neo:associates, Lucie Wilson, Sandra Bouguerch and Sume Leyden, who have invited a diverse group of 23 regional, national and international artists to work creatively around their personal interpretation of the theme. Visitors to the exhibition will find an eclectic mix of exhibits, from interactive mirrors which turn to face the viewer, virtual reality installations, futuristic animations and sound pieces, as well as paintings, videos and 3D artworks.

Invited artists are Eric Pickersgill, Alastair Peat, Ashokkumar D Mistry, Bex Ilsley, Carolyn Curtis-Magri, Elliot Brown, Guli Silberstein, Helen Wheeler, Henry/Bragg, Dr Jacqueline Wylie, Janette Byrne, Keith Brown, Liliana Robins, Louise Garman, Oliver Blight, Paul Turnock, Said Afifi, Sally A Hayes, Tess Baxter and Zlatco Cosic.

A series of artist's talks will be staged throughout the duration of the exhibition and a catalogue containing images, artists’ statements and critical writing will be available for sale.
