TECHnique event to return at the V&A
Three artists to give talks about their digital experiences and the lessons that they have learned when working with technology.
Why do some artists stick with traditional techniques, while others turn to digital options? Well, TECHnique is an event that aims to help you understand the answers to that question, as three artists from different fields tell their stories and describe their experiences of working with technology.
A year has passed since Create Hub ran its inaugural artist talk. TECHnique was first held at Google Campus London in August 2016, where Create Hub Founder Samuel Fry explained that it “is the first event that we have done, so it’s a bit of an experiment.” The experiment was a success, so Create Hub have decided to bring the event back – this time at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The new talk is part of the V&A’s Digital Design Weekend, which brings together artists, designers, engineers, technologists and the public to celebrate and share contemporary digital art and design. It is also a part of the London Design Festival, a series of events celebrating contemporary digital art and design.
The speakers are soon to be announced; however, they are expected to include artists and designers that are working with technology in an interesting way. Last year, the speakers included Fiddian Warman (Soda), Debbie Davies (artist), Bhavani Esapathi (The Invisible Labs) and Richard Adams (Royal Shakespeare Company).
Samuel Fry, Founder of Create Hub, explains that: “We are delighted to be bringing TECHnique back. There are only a few events where artists are able to talk about their process and their practice in a truly open way. To be able to share these stories at the V&A is a fantastic opportunity.”
