5 – 27 May 2017
Dot.Art is is an exhibition and events programme presenting artworks from the first wave of Net.Art alongside more recent projects produced since the rise of web 2.0, social networks and easily accessible search engines. Taking place in Vivid Projects’ physical space as well as occupying hyperlinks on its website, the Dot.Art season explores the internet as a medium and site for art from the 1990s through to the present day and includes an events series incorporating a weekly reading group, talks, performances and workshops. Details on the exhibition can be found here

Heath Bunting Artist Talk (part of Museums at Night)
Heath Bunting discusses his work BorderXing Guide and his wider practice. BorderXing Guide includes walks that traverse national boundaries, without interruption from customs, immigration, or border police and comments on the ways in which movement between borders is restricted by governments and associated bureaucracies.
As a part of Dot.Art there will be an informal reading and discussion group on Thursday evenings. This reading group is free to attend for members of Black Hole Club, Extra Special People and the Office for Art, Design and Technology Professional Development Cohort. We ask all other attendees to make a small donation.
PDFs for the reading group will be made available here a week before the group meets.
