Structures and Textures: Materiality @ GL STRAND, Sep 3

, 2 September 2014

Copenhagen’s GL STRAND is hosting the next Lunch Bytes discussion titled Structures and Textures: Materiality on September 3, from 5 to 7pm.

Part of the European Edition discussion series examining the consequences of ubiquitous digital technologies in contemporary art practice, the Lunch Bytes events have previously tackled media and digital infrastructures at London’s ICA, photography at Amsterdam’s Foam, and most recently sound at Helsinki’s Sinne.

This segment of the discussion series focuses in on materiality in the digitised world and examines how living online has affected an artist’s understanding of substance. Featuring artists Dan Stockholm and Timur Si-Qin, as well as Berlin writer Ana Teixeira Pinto and Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts professor Mette Ramsgard Thomsen, the panel will be moderated by Copenhagen curator and critic Toke Lykkeberg and Lynch Bytes curator Melanie Bühler, in taking a close look at the digital tools used in contemporary art making, and how and why material and physical qualities are being replicated digitally.

See the Lunch Bytes event page for details. **
