Electronic Superhighway (2016 – 1966)
29 January – 15 May 2016
Carroll / Fletcher artists Constant Dullaart, Eva & Franco Mattes, Evan Roth, Manfed Mohr, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and Thomson & Craighead are all part of Electronic Superhighway (2016 – 1966) opening at Whitechapel Gallery on 29 January 2016.
In January 2016 the Whitechapel Gallery presents Electronic Superhighway, a landmark exhibition that brings together over 100 artworks to show the impact of computer and Internet technologies on artists from the mid-1960s to the present day.
The exhibition title Electronic Superhighway is taken from a term coined in 1974 by South Korean video art pioneer Nam June Paik, who foresaw the potential of global connections through technology. Arranged in reverse chronological order, Electronic Superhighway begins with works made between 2000 – 2016, and ends with Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T), an iconic, artistic moment that took place in 1966. Spanning 50 years, from 2016 to 1966, key moments in the history of art and the Internet emerge as the exhibition travels back in time.
