About the exhibition

Analogue art in a Digital World presents a survey of contemporary artists who use the analogue practices of painting and drawing to create artworks that engage with or are influenced by digital visual culture.

The exhibition explores how artists are finding new content in digital media and how technology has altered the nature of analogue art practices.

Language shapes the way we think, and the dominant visual medium influences the way we see the world. Many contemporary artists use digital technology in the process of creating artworks. Digital photography, Photoshop, and Google images are standard tools for painters. The sketch book has been replaced by a desktop folder.

Analogue Art in a Digital World is a valuable exhibition for VCE Studio Arts students. To make a booking for a free guided tour please contact RMIT Gallery on (03) 9925 1717. Guided tours are being taken from Monday 10 December to Friday 21 December.

Analogue Art in a Digital World is on until 19 January 2019.
