Arts Technologies

The Arts Technologies programme at the Serpentine Galleries proposes critical and interdisciplinary perspectives on advanced technologies through artistic interventions.

Challenging and reshaping the role that technologies can play in culture and society is part of the Serpentine’s commitment to supporting new artistic experiments at what has now become a historical intersection. The programme initiates and supports artists in developing ambitious artworks that deploy advanced technologies as a medium, tool or topic, often operating beyond gallery walls.

The foundation of the Arts Technologies programme is located in an evolving R&D Platform that supports the development of infrastructures for ongoing artistic exploration and interrogation of advanced and emerging technologies.
