Technology is not Neutral is a touring exhibition project that highlights and investigates the work of a group of women artists in the field of digital arts. This new curatorial project explores methods of working with new technologies and the themes that bring these artists together.
From drone choreography, sequencing of bacteria and brainwave art to hacking reality, social media activism and telepresence, this exhibition highlights the contribution of female artists in shaping what digital art is today. The exhibition title references the challenges faced by female artists in this field where they are often under-represented.
The exhibition features existing and newly commissioned work by leading pioneering and contemporary female digital artists, such as Ghislaine Boddington, Susan Collins, Laura Dekker, Anna Dumitriu, Bhavani Esapathi, Julie Freeman, Kate Genevieve, Sue Gollifer, Luciana Haill, Nina Kov, and Gordana Novakovic.
Supported using public funding by Arts Council England. In partnership with The Computer Arts Society, UCL Department of Computer Science, Women Shift Digital and Phoenix Brighton.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a major symposium and a series of workshops.
Curated by Gordana Novakovic, Anna Dumitriu and Irini Papadimitriou/Watermans.
