The New Digital Wave – How Has New Technology Impacted on the Arts in the UK and France?

Bureau Export, the Institut Français, Noise of Art and Mairie de Paris are collaborating on a series of events, French Digital Waves, in and around this year’s Convergence Festival (12th-20th March), highlighting French pioneers and new talent working at the bleeding edges of art, technology and music.

This discussion looks at what it means to be an artist in the digital age in the UK and France, how new multi-disciplinary works are funded, and how they’re received by critics and the public.

On the panel are Pierre Lefeuvre aka electronic artist Saycet; visual artist Hugo Arcier; academic and researcher Jean-Paul Fourmentraux; programmer of the Lyon-based festival Nuits Sonores Pierre-Marie Oullion; James Bulley (Living Symphonies, Goldsmiths Sound Practice Research Unit, New Radiophonic Workshop); and Graham Daniels of British duo Addictive TV.
Chaired by Cecilia Wee – London-based independent curator, researcher and tutor at the School of Communication, Royal College of Art. She has a long-standing association with Resonance FM as a broadcaster and Trustee.
