It wonders at the swift rise of visual language in popular culture and how this may affect the future of visual communication.
The gallery will act as a critical space to bring together diverse, often interactive, works that include film, performance, sculpture and online image. In their different ways, these artworks reflect on issues around the self-regulated image that haunts user-generated content on social media, creation of virtual avatars, and online gender stereotypes.
The private view will consist of a programme of performances and talks, culminating with a collection of short films from both affiliated artists and the internet hive mind. This event will be partly livestreamed through social media, bringing the digital/physical exchange full circle.
Artists: Hollie Page, Lyle Anderton, Amy Grace, Fynne Saunders, Ella Shipway
