Digital Aesthetic 3: Exhibition extension

Due to the popularity of the Digital Aesthetic³ exhibition at PR1 Gallery, UCLan (Oct 6th – Oct 19th), we are pleased to announce that the show has been relocated and extended until the end of the year.

The exhibition, featuring work by 9 artists from both across the North West, UK and internationally, is now located in the Harris Museum & Art Gallery’s Watercolour Gallery space, and opens today (Saturday 10th November 2012).

Curated by Tracy Hill, Magda Stawarska-Beavan and David Henckel of UCLan’s leading printmaking department, Artlab, the exhibition considers the role of printmaking in the age of digital culture, and the influence of digital media on contemporary printmaking.

Included in the show are Keith Brown‘s incredible 3D digital sculptures (Magic Carpet, 2010) and a film of Preston-based artist David Henckel’s Golden Gum (2012) project – an interactive musical installation using found patterns. Also on exhibit is a large new piece by Japanese artist Katsutoshi Yuasa, which depicts a golden volcano meticulously rendered in hand carved woodcut prints, which take the ‘digital snapshot’ as a key starting point of production.

Visit the Harris Museum now to see both Digital Aesthetic³ exhibitions under one roof, and experience the best ‘art in a digital world’ today.
