Analogue Art in a Digital World: Symposium + Drinks

Has analogue art acquired a digital accent?

The analogue artist in the age of digital reproduction has new tools and resources to draw on; high definition photography, image editing software, and the myriad of images provisioned by the Internet are necessary studio utilities. These digital assets are a boon for painting and drawing but prolonged exposure to screens has changed the way we think about images and over the past twenty years, analogue art has acquired a slight digital accent.

Digital aesthetics are creeping into the analogue practices of painting and drawing. How are post-digital age artworks revealing the subtle influences that digital technology has on our perception and interpretation of the world?

Join a panel of artists from the exhibition Analogue Art in a Digital World (RMIT Gallery 17 Dec – 19 Jan 2019) as they explore the possibilities.

Curators Sam Leach & Tony Lloyd

Artists Monika Behrens, Natasha Bienek, Chris Bond, Andrew Browne, Magda Cebokli, Simon Finn, Juan Ford, Stephen Haley, Michelle Hamer, Kate Just, Sam Leach, Tony Lloyd, Amanda Marburg, Viv Miller, Jan Nelson, Becc Ország, David Ralph, Datsun Tran, Darren Wardle, Alice Wormald.
