£10 for non-members. Coffee and lunch included

This study day aims to explore how institutions can adapt to the challenges of curating and installing art created with the latest technology, including Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality, AI & Generative Art, as well as 3D Sculptural & Interactive Art.

Held in collaboration with Lumen Art Projects, it will take place at The Cello Factory in Waterloo, which is showing the 2019 Lumen Prize Director’s Showcase. In the first part of the day, we will have a series of short presentation by artists and curators, including Jake Elwes, whose work engages with AI, David Colombini, who builds interactive sculptural work and is part of the Swiss artist collective Fragmentin, and Melanie Lenz, digital curator at the Victoria & Albert Museum.

During lunch, Jack Addis, curator and director of the Lumen Art Projects will provide a walk- through of the exhibition.

In the second part of the day, there will be a discussion moderated by Carla Rapoport, founder of the Lumen Prize, and a Q&A on both curation and installation.

With special thanks to The Cello Factory for hosting the event.
