Networking the Unseen is the first exhibition of its kind to focus on the intersection of indigenous cultures and zeitgeist digital practices in art, bringing together concepts and experiences of remoteness and marginalised cultures, with art-making in contemporary society.
Featuring Gretta Louw, Lily Hibberd, Brook Andrew, Curtis Taylor, Jenny Fraser, Sharon Nampijinpa Anderson and the Warnayaka Art Centre.
Deep Water Web is a poetic essayistic meditation around phenomena straddling contemporary and historical geopolitical contexts of the UK and Australia; a continuous hyperlandscape, an environment composed from local manifestations of global ecologies, between points in the northern and southern hemispheres in the UK and Australia, online and in the physical space of Furtherfield Gallery.
Join us on August 4th between 6 and 6.45 for an exhibition tour by Gretta Louw at the Furtherfield Gallery. Then from 7 to 8, we will continue at Furtherfield Commons with a presentation by Louw, Your Emojis Are Not Innocent: Selfies and Alterity, in which she will present her upcoming collaboration with Warnayaka Art Centre to create a Warlpiri selfie and photo editing app, and a discussion about how selfies, social media, and alterity can be used for social good.
Become a digital media artist. Design your own digital game, make a robot, or design a selfie app. Create small 'geocached' artwork for people to find in Finsbury Park, or narrate an audio guide for gallery visitors. Meet and learn with leading artists, and at the end of the programme you can keep your own 'Raspberry Pi' pocket computer.
Join Neil Jupurrurla Cook, artist and Director of the Warnayaka Art and Aboriginal Cultural Corporation, and Gretta Louw, artist and curator, for a curated tour of Networking the Unseen and then head down to Furtherfield Commons for a Show and Tell about their collaboration and work.
