Future Human presents: Instant Art

July 13, 2011 by Georgia

The Book Club
Leonard Street
London EC2A 4RH
13 July from 7.00 pm - 9.30 pm

Guests speakers: Julian Stallabrass (The Courtauld Institute), Ruth Catlow (Furtherfield) and Chris Thorpe (Artfinder).

Future Human, and its self-announced 'Theatre of Innovation" present an evening of discussion and debate in which panelists will explore how technological innovations like apps, iPads and mobile internet are transforming the contemporary art world and, more importantly, what the implications of these changes are for artists and professionals working in the field.

Three guest speakers will talk about the effect of changing technology on both the production and the distribution side of the art world. Potential subjects of discussion will be David Hockney, whose October 2010 exhibition of digital flower paintings in Paris used iPhones and iPads as canvases; Charles Saatchi, whose new online store allows lesser known artists to sell their work directly to buyers across the globe and the Auction Houses, who are developing apps that help them conduct sales and who also employ technologies that guard against sophisticated counterfeiters.

Technology makes art a more instantaneous business, hence the title Instant Art, but how does this revolution challenge the very concept of value – both aesthetic and economic – in the modern art world? Will the value of contemporary art fall as the reproduction on art becomes instant and potentially infinite? And how might investors from emerging world economies like China, India and Russia distort the picture?

We are hoping to find the answers tonight.
