Para/site and Spring welcome
Please join us for a talk by Claire Bishop, entitled “OS XXI: Contemporary Art and the Digital”.
The talk looks at how the art market still revolves around visual artefacts produced as one-offs or in limited editions, and bearing traces of the artist’s hand. At the same time, it presents the question of how we increasingly consume art digitally – whether through search engine queries, online databases, or through photographic documentation. Is visual art guilty of repressing its relationship to new technology? Does its attachment to the aura of obsolete media (such as analog film, slide projections and archival installations) mean that visual art itself is soon to become outmoded?
Spring is delighted to host Claire Bishop’s talk as part of Spring’s collaboration with the Para/Site International Art Residency programme.
