NEW GENERATIONS

In January 2024 we hosted another artist bootcamp residency alongside LCB Depot's Digital Art Month. This time the theme was "generative art", a unique practice where artists use systems, algorithms, and rules to create diverse, thought-provoking works. This exploration often includes elements such as chance, randomness, or mathematical concepts.

Mentor on the residency, Dr Sean Clark, has written up an excellent summary of all activities here.

Below is a selection of photographs from the closing party private view.

ART IN THE AGE OF MEDIA REPRODUCTION

This was a seminar in April 2023 led by PHD researchers Sean Carroll (NMAC) and Jenny Gleadell (Lincolm Museum) with support from AHRC and Midland 4 Cities. 

In 1929, Walter Benjamin wrote “We must expect [technology] to transform the entire technique, and bring about an amazing change in our notion of art.” Our premise is that through the development of pervasive media and technology we have arrived, or are close to this moment. We propose a day of debate, inviting researchers, practitioners and institutions to discuss what happens next. Supported by Midland 4 Cities
