29 Jul — 4 Oct 2021 Free BSL Interpreted Closed Captions

Join us and our contributors to Future Art Ecosystems: Art x Metaverse (FAE2) as we discuss the metaverse and the opportunities and challenges facing artists, producers and cultural institutions within an increasingly virtual landscape.

The second issue of Future Art Ecosystems is produced by Serpentine R&D Platform in collaboration with Rival Strategy and Luke Caspar Pearson, Guest Producer. It aims to provide analytical and conceptual tools alongside strategic guidance for the construction of 21st century cultural infrastructure: systems that would support art and advanced technologies and be responsive to a broader social shift towards virtual experiences.

In the spirit of FAE, our Live Session conversations aim to draw attention and provide greater transparency to infrastructures and systems behind the work of artists and producers. They are also an opportunity to hear directly from FAE2’s contributors as it is their perspectives that form the basis for FAE’s primary research
