Lost Ontologies: The Creative Arts Practice MA Degree Show

Lost Ontologies: The Creative Arts Practice MA Degree Show
18th August 2017, 5.30 to 9pm
Free entry and refreshments

Newcastle University’s Culture Lab will host ‘Lost Ontologies’, an interdisciplinary showcase featuring photography, performance, text and installation work. Thirteen artists will be engaged with topics including encryption, cultural heritage, technological innovation and the current socio-political landscape. Recent work from the cohort has included historical street literature reimagined through Twitter, a performance of whispered doubts warped and distorted through interaction, and imaginary computer encodings realised in clay.

The Culture Lab is a cross-disciplinary research facility located in the Grand Assembly Rooms, located on King’s Walk at the edge of Newcastle University campus. It provides a hub for digital creative practice and experimental filmmaking in particular, but also plays host to a wealth of artistic collaborations.

This degree show aims to reflect the creative diversity of the Culture Lab and the current cohort of Creative Arts Practice students. Any and all people interested in digital cultures or the creative arts are invited to attend this exciting showcase.

Lost Ontologies coincides with the MFA (Masters in Fine Art) show taking place adjacently throughout the King Edward VII Building.

Lost Ontologies continues until the 25th August
