'New Networks: New Normal’ is a talk exploring the conditions facing artists today: relationships organically forged via precarious channels of alternative education, artist-led initiatives, open formats, studio disruption and social media. This forms part of the New Material programme of talks aimed at sparking discussion with other artists and the public about what characterises life and art in this new material world— specifically investigating different modes of artistic development in today's context.
The discussion will be delivered in conversation with artists from Syllabus II: a national selected peer-led artist development programme delivered in partnership by Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; Eastside Projects, Birmingham; New Contemporaries; S1 Artspace, Sheffield; Spike Island, Bristol, and Studio Voltaire, London.
This talk is particularly geared towards art students, artists and people involved in any form of education and social media.
