A conversation about the impact of the internet on contemporary visual culture with some of London’s leading young voices in digital media and post-internet art.
The panel comprised of Paul Hobson (Contemporary Art Society Director), Sarah Page (Contemporary Art Society Membership Programmes Manager), Attilia Fattori Franchini, a bright and rising curator working with digital media and co-director of online gallery, bubblebyte.org, and acclaimed artist and member of the collective, LuckyPDF, Yuri Pattison.
It is not enough to imagine post-internet art as being only computer or internet based, but rather it can be identified as any art that is influenced by the internet and digital media. Informed by questions around the collapse of the traditional physical exhibition space, the reproducibility of the digital image, decentralised authorship, and further into ideas around the development of attention as currency. Post-internet art is a subject of our contemporary moment and we were delighted to invite your views, questions and thoughts on it in an evening of discussion and debate.
