About This Porgram

The UCCA exhibition "Art Post-Internet" is curated by Karen Archey and Robin Peckham. The show offers a critical examination of an inter-generational group of European and American artists for whom ubiquitous digital transmission is the norm.

As the practice of post-internet have not yet been sufficiently or critically introduced or interpreted, this exhibition aims to redress this imbalance by allowing for substantíve commentary and conversation. The talk invites the two curators to introduce their ideas and thoughts about the exhibition and internet-related art practices. The lecture is moderated by UCCA Director Phillip Tinari.
