Join Vivid Projects for the launch of Dot.Art, an international exhibition of net art which includes artists Heath Bunting, Critical Art Ensemble, Lorna Mills, MTAA, Rafaël Rozendaal, Ryder Ripps and Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries.
The launch will feature a performance of Ryder Ripps’ online poem, Howl 2.0 at 7.30pm.
Produced by Ryan Hughes (Lead Artist at Office for Art, Design and Technology) in partnership with Vivid Projects, Dot.Art presents seminal artists from the first wave of net art alongside more recent projects produced since the rise of web 2.0, social networks and easily accessible search engines. Taking place in the gallery and online, the season explores the internet as a medium and site for art from the 1990s through to the present day.
The exhibition continues 6 – 27 May, Thursday-Saturday 12-5pm. Artist details, talks, events and links can be found at http://www.vividprojects.org.uk/programme/dot-art/
