A special event in the GHOSTS: technologies/subjectivities series:
UAL Chair of Black Art and Design Professor Paul Goodwin in conversation with artist and academic Dr Keith Piper (Middlesex University) and artist and former Head of New Media at Iniva Gary Stewart.
 
Part of the GHOSTS programme of exhibitions and events, this discussion will trace an alternative genealogy of contemporary artist’s exploration of technology and techno-culture in Britain through the practices of two pioneers in the field of new media art: Keith Piper and Gary Stewart. The discussion will unpack critical notions such as ‘digital diasporas’ while discussing the impact of seminal exhibitions and projects such Keith Piper’s ‘Relocating the Remains’ (1997) and Gary Stewart’s ‘Liminal: A Question of Position’ (2009).

This event is part of the UAL Chair's Present Series
