In collaboration with performance artist Giselle Stanborough, students will consider our contemporary relationship to social media and how we present ourselves and negotiate relationships through online platforms.
Using examples from contemporary art practice and art history, students will be guided in a consideration of the language of portraiture, imagined futures and the ongoing impact of technology on visual representation.
In small groups, students will be faced with a series of challenges to subvert and critique the restrictions and potential of social media using text, performance and photography. Through a process of creation, presentation and discussion students will develop the ability to unpack the language of visual communication and contextualise their own visual outcomes.
After Technology is a group exhibition that considers how Australian artists have registered the rise of technologies since the 1990s; from the emerging science of genetic testing and the effect of military technologies on civilian life, to the bleed between life online and IRL. The exhibition asks what becomes of love, the body, culture, family, community, nature, identity and communication after technology?
