Working mainly in sculpture and video, Chinese artist Guan Xiao (b.1983) explores how ways of seeing are now influenced by digital image circulation as an increasingly dominant source of knowledge and information exchange. In various works and installations she endeavours to expand the aesthetic and cognitive possibilities for how identity and meaning are assigned and understood.

Electronic Superhighway (2016-1966) at the Whitechapel Art Gallery

Electronic Superhighway (2016-1966)

29 January – 15 May 2016

This is the major new show at the Whitechapel Art Gallery

A major exhibition bringing together over 100 works to show the impact of computer and Internet technologies on artists from the mid-1960s to the present day.

It’s a pity that it is their ‘paying show’ this year- (Student price £9.50) but I expect it will have a lot of seminal work in it. It will probably be quite overwhelming.. so allow enough time to smake your visit. Would be great if some PTBM body wanted to do a blog post on this! As it is really relevant to our pathway…

 

Tank TV online video show- New Group Materialism

Some interesting video work here to view online, especially if you are interested in a

“kind of artistic practice that through video mimics the production processes of advertising, TV and fashion – a practice that instead of opposing the corporate/institutional spectacle, flirts with its idioms and subverts its (commercial) objectives.”

Recent issues where computer programs and algorithms have incorrectly identified people and objects have started to open a wider debate about the socio-political ramifications of such misrepresentation. Artist Max Dovey – whom we first profiled in Imperica back in 2011 – is addressing these issues head-on in his new work, How to be more or less human.
