Synthetic Ecology (SE) is a contemporary artists’ moving image festival showcasing works that push the boundaries of digital territories, geopolitics and ecological thought. Join us for an evening of FREE screenings and talks with a selection of established and emergent talent including:

SE aims to engage emerging and established artists from different cultures and communities, connected by a sensitivity to bridging ecological thought and technological socio-political issues. SE is critical of ecological and environmental art being inaccessible and un-relatable to contemporary experimental artists’ practice, and therefore aims to form a critical and shifting platform for ecological research and artist’s moving image.

In its first iteration, Synthetic Ecology will host an evening of contemporary artists’ moving image screenings and talks accompanied by a day of peer-to-peer professional development workshops for the selected artists.

Curated by Mikhail Karikis, Lydia Heath and Louis Joe Sainsbury, Synthetic Ecology is an artist run project in collaboration with ONCAGallery, funded by the Arts Council England.

FREE ENTRY – Doors at 6:30pm, screenings start at 7pm. Refreshments available.
