SEEING THE UNSEEN Exhibition 20 – 30 July 2016 (London)


20 – 30 July 2016

SEEING THE UNSEEN is a unique exhibition showcasing the hybrid nature of art as a reflection of ever-changing and hybridising local and global communities.

Six British artists engage with digital technologies as part of their artistic practice fusing traditional aesthetics of geometry, floral motifs, and calligraphy with contemporary digital mediums. Artworks include interactive installations, digital prints and animation, evoking an examination of the relationship between shapes and form.

Alongside the exhibition there are also two exciting workshops providing an insider’s perspective on both the creative and technical aspects of artworks exhibited as part of SEEING THE UNSEEN.

A brief introduction – I am pursuing research at University of Kent on the topic of contemporary Islamic art in Britain and the use of digital technologies by artists within this art scene.

The study aims to understand the contemporary Islamic art scene from the perspective of artists, curators and the general public.

Alongside this will be an investigation into whether digital technologies are being adopted by these artists and if so, in which ways? Digital technologies can be used in a number of ways so I’ll be keeping the term ‘use‘ quite open. It will therefore apply to those artists who adopt digital technologies for not only producing but also presenting and curating their artworks.

I’m keen to hear public thoughts on this or related topics so please feel free to get in touch!

In the meantime, keep an eye out for new posts which will demonstrate the subject areas that will feed into, inform and shape the developments in my research.
