About

Science, technology and art have always been intimately connected, from the 15th-century printing presses mastered by Albrecht Dürer, to the 19th-century chemistry and optics that heralded a new era of photography. 

But how are the new technologies of Artificial Intelligence, and Virtual and Augmented Reality changing the way art is made and experienced?
How are artists using computers, coding, apps and 3D printing to upend traditional media, interactivity and even the ethics of art? 

Join Jacky Klein for this online talk as she asks, where will technology take artists and the art world in the next decade? And how has the global lockdown accelerated this artistic revolution?
