Dialogues: A Hybrid Art Project

20-31 July 2022
Virtual Opening Event: 20 July, 6-7pm (BST)


‘Dialogues’ is based on the exploration of hybrid spaces of exchange and art interventions that blend physical and virtual realities in new configurations.

The first instance of this project in July 2022 sought to instigate a dialogue between eight independent artists. The participating artist exchanged artworks to experience them in their own personal space for a period of 10 days (their home, studio, a familiar space, or simply where they were). During that period the artworks were publicly available on this site through relevant documentation and live streaming (see windows below).  Alongside the virtual exhibition, the project involved a series of one-to-one online encounters between the artists to enable further interactions around the shared ecology of the project’s platform.

The project seeks to address the relationship between art practices and audiences in networked spaces. The interest here lies with notions of interaction and mediation that transcend physical/virtual dichotomies and private/public conceptions of space.

This virtual exhibition will be accompanied by a publication reflecting on the outcomes of this first instance of the project.
