Hello World

20.11.10 – 05.12.10

Embassy Gallery, Edinburgh

More information

Hello World is a project in two parts taking as its starting point the emergence of the Internet over the past 20 years as one of the primary means of the dissemination of information.

Part 1:

The first part is a physical exhibition that will take place at the Embassy featuring the work of 6 artists. The work in the show will approach the way in which the Internet has influenced cultural production, in specific relation to practices of appropriation. The increasing digitalisation and distribution of media has spurred a new generation of artists to approach the image in a similar way to that of the supposed ‘pictures generation’, taking extant images and recontextualising them, augmenting meaning or offering new ways of seeing.

Part 2:

The second part will be an experimental seminar with a new link being shared daily, through the sources listed below for the duration of the exhibition.
