Autumn 2019 season to explore art, science and technology
In autumn 2019, Delfina Foundation will launch a new theme that crosses art, science and technology to support interdisciplinary approaches which consider, intervene in, and speculate on the world in which we live and its possible futures.
Building on the successes of previous thematic programmes including The Politics of Food and Collecting as Practice, this new recurrent programme, science technology society, seeks to create a focused environment to foster collaborations between artists, scientists and other experts, incubate ideas and support the development of new projects which aim to make a tangible impact on our lives.
The first season of this thematic programme will be shaped by the enquiries, interests and practices of our international residents and UK associates who have been selected from an open call issued in late 2018. Their diverse interests and approaches – spanning areas including how lived experience can be digitally captured; experiments with environmental data; and the relationship between technology and social structures – will be brought together over the autumn season.
Serving as a hub for the season’s evolving programme, the project space at Delfina will be transformed by PUP Architects to accommodate public and private discussions, presentations, workshops and experimentation around the pressing issues of our times.
This season is in partnership with Gaia Art Foundation.
