Arts Technologies

Serpentine’s Arts Technologies programme proposes critical and interdisciplinary perspectives on technologies through artistic interventions and creative research
and development.

How can artistic experimentation challenge and reshape the role that technologies can play in culture and society?  Serpentine Arts Technologies operates as an integrated programme for artistic and organisational experimentation, seeking to continually augment our capabilities and develop new propositions for how art and creative R&D can contribute towards societal negotiation of technologies. The programme 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 an evolving Research and Development Platform that nurtures the development of infrastructures for ongoing artistic exploration and interrogation of advanced and emerging technologies. As the initiator of Future Art Ecosystems, Arts Technologies champions sector-convening initiatives and builds dedicated, diverse communities by co-commissioning and co-producing innovative projects which share knowledge, capabilities and resources.
