16 October 2019 – 20 October 2019
A new and timely exhibition ‘Hidden Paths’ offers an immersive and reflective space to explore how current crises of extreme weather, automation, political instability and inequality are connected in deep and often invisible ways.
‘Hidden Paths’ welcomes visitors to consider the troubled systems that we live in and the possibilities for transformation. Through a series of artworks – from a sonic waterfall, sculptures, recipes, film and video, to a virtual reality (VR) experience – visitors will explore how we imagine the future and what it could mean to live in zero carbon futures that foster equality and wellbeing.
Individual artist participants: Thomas Buckley | Cliff Crawford | Toni Slater | Idil Bozkurt | Alexandra Stuart-Hutcheson | Sam Hewitt | David Holyoake | Molly Astley | Katharine Vega | Rebecca McDonald-Balfour | Envy | Tyler van der Berg | Emily Hallows | Elia Habib | Annie Elliott | Ben Ireland | Lucy Wood | Gregory Campbell |Otter Lieffe | Faumuina Felolini Tafunai | Charlotte Pulver
Media and guests are invited to the launch event for ‘Hidden Paths’, 6-8pm on Wednesday 16th October, at ONCA Gallery. Click here to RSVP.
This exhibition is part of Brighton Digital Arts Festival 2019.
