About the event
From the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution, new technologies and innovations have had major impacts on our societies’ ability to produce and experience art. ARTIQ and Broadgate bring together thought leaders including Patrick McCrae, CEO, Artiq (pictured); Dr Oonagh Murphy Lecturer in Arts Management, Goldsmiths (pictured); Mary-Alice Stack, CEO, Creative United and Margot Mottaz, Curatorial Assistant, PACE Gallery to explore the intersection of art and technology.
From algorithms redefining the concept of the artist to private views experienced through VR headsets, the panel will explore the ways in which technology is reshaping and redefining cultural experience. How will artists, institutions and galleries adapt to this new landscape? What impact will technology have on our access to culture and what are its limits? What is the future of ‘art’ space?
