Sentient Circuitries Digital Media Arts Symposium
SURREY ART GALLERY | 13750 88 Ave, Surrey, BC
Saturday, November 16 | 12––4:30pm
Admission is free
A group of leading digital art thinkers and makers will be in Surrey to mark the 20th anniversary of Surrey Art Gallery’s TechLab. Since it was opened in 1999, the digital-art space/program has presented some cutting-edge electronic art, workshops, performances, residencies, film screenings and more.
On Saturday, November 16, TechLab will be a focal point of a digital media arts symposium dubbed Sentient Circuitries, from 12––4:30 p.m. Admission is free.
The event is billed as “a gathering of leaders in digital media arts who will take the pulse of the field today and speculate about where art practices are heading,” according to a news release from SAG operators. “These creative practitioners will examine the theme of interactivity in digital media in the recent past and present, and the direction this art form might take in the future.”
Hosted by artist Brady Ciel Marks and curator Jordan Strom, presenters will include keynote speaker Beryl Graham, along with Peter Courtemanche, Garnet Hertz, Marc Johnson, Maria Lantin, Thecla Schiphorst and Leila Sujir. The afternoon will include an interactive performance by Sammy Chien.
