This seminar examines the challenges and opportunities posed by new digital processes and platforms to contemporary drawing. Bringing together key thinkers in the field, the day-long event will feature presentations and panel discussions exploring what ‘the digital’ means for drawing today. Speakers will examine topics including: the aesthetics of drawing in the post-internet age; the open-ended nature of digital practice; the use of the Internet as a medium; approaches to ‘drawing’ with data; and histories and technologies of computer art.
This seminar is open to all, and will be of particular interest to artists, arts professionals, and researchers interested in digital technologies and the visual arts.
