V&A late night tonight

I'm going to this tonight. Care to join me? It's free, it's in a gallery, it's dijji, it's moving.

24 February

Onedotzero Presents forms part of the Contemporary Programme's ongoing remit of linking contemporary practice to the V&A's historical collections through gallery based installations. Onedotzero are moving image and digital media pioneers who will work with the V&A to invite artists to respond to the Museum's galleries and collections using digital, audio and moving image media. The Friday Late will present a range of new and existing work to a general audience, and build upon the V&A's developing relationships with moving image, digital media and interaction designers and artists, initiated through exhibitions like Shhh…Sounds in Space (supported by Arts Council England, London in 2004) and Touch Me in 2005.

This Friday Late has two key objectives. The first is to promote current creative practice in a multidisciplinary and multicultural way. New work will be shown from a wide range of practitioners using digital media who are all known for pushing the boundaries of the genres in which they work and offering a true diversity of appeal. The Friday Late will also place digital art and design within a broad art and design narrative, suggesting links with the V&A's existing collections, rather than as a discrete art form. The second objective is to encourage new ways for the visitor to relate to digital media and the V&A's collections. This will allow the visitor to become aware of the range of stories that objects and spaces can tell, and enable them to realise that they can create their own responses to the objects around them.
