Projected Histories

How can art that is created or presented digitally teach us more about the world we live in? What is the material of the digital? We are seeking artists who actively (critically or otherwise) engage with the lineage of digitally displayed art. The exhibition will display different artistic disciplines in a group show that reflects the real world and recent art histories.

Submissions from practitioners working with the internet, projection, media installation, digital and analogue photography and film, game design, animation, computer programming, 3D printing and contemporary science are encouraged.

The deadline for submissions has now passed, we invite you to discover those selected during FaB17, 26 May to 11 June.

Curated by Jack Smurthwaite & Patrick Creedon


There is still time to be part of PH

It is the final straight. Less than one week to go until the deadline. We have had some brilliant and exciting submissions for Projected Histories so far and we are looking forward to installing a really interesting exhibition this summer.

So far, we Pat and I (the curators) have formulated a strong critical frame work through which to explore ideas of the digital. The installation at FAB will interrogate how works are mediated in the gallery, how the digital is translated to the physical.

We are hoping to host an online counterpart to the festival display so that visitors can explore the project in different ways and think about the ways they absorb information. 

There is still time to contribute. Drop us an email with any questions or with examples of your work to be considered for the exhibition.
