About this Event

Event Schedule:

6:00PM - 7:30PM Part 1: The Show

7:30PM - 9:00PM Part 2: Discussion

Talking Point involves a range of work by artists and designers from various levels of practice. Originally created in different mediums, their work has been recontextualised through augmented reality, kickstarting a conversation about how we define gallery spaces within an evermore digitised art ecology.

The interplay between digital and physical environments will grant WatWei an unprecedented personification of power as ‘curators’, similar to that of which a digital platform embodies, in terms of scale, composition and context. If you take a traditional gallery space and strip the walls of artwork and place them within an AR application, what then is the gallery? The space or the app? This interplay between digital and physical spaces manipulates the role of WatWei as curators or rather, the artists.

The extent of this invite reaches out to artist’s and people within the art world who can con-tribute an interesting voice to the conversation. We will encourage the audience to speak out and voice their opinions during the later discussion part of the event.

With painters, digital artists, photographers & gallerists in discussion, opinions on how the work has been used will differ in exciting and complex ways, shaping our future understanding of how the relationship between physical gallery spaces and technology should and could move forward.
