From the printing press to the portable camcorder, artists have always harnessed new technologies to create works that stimulate the senses, inspire the minds.
In recent years, much new technology are being created and consumed in Asia. How does this environment affect artists from the region?
Distilling Senses: A Journey through Art and Technology in Asian Contemporary Art, the Hong Kong Arts Centre’s 5th annual flagship exhibition, seeks to address this question by bringing together nine Asian artists. The exhibition explores how technology shapes art and how artists use technology to sharpen our senses and enhance understanding of our surroundings.
A talk with featured artists will be held on 11 December 2013. A free audio guide and school tours for secondary school students by the HKAC’s “Art Available to All” education programme are also available.
