NEoN Digital Arts Festival kicks off next week from 4 -10 November 2019, across Dundee. The Weave by Abertay team and staff members from the School of Design and Informatics have been working on various parts of NEoN’s exciting, expansive programme.
NEoN’s flagship exhibition, Re:make /Re:sist, is curated by Weave by Abertay and features work by Igor Vamos (The Yes Men), Addie Wagenknecht, Irene Tokini Fubara-Manuel, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez, Tina Keane and Abertay’s very own Joseph DeLappe.
On Thursday night, as part of the NEoN Walking Tour, Weave are hosting a Platform talk with Irene Tokini Fubara-Manuel where she will be in conversation with curator Clare Brennan, discussing her game/artwork Dreams of Disguise. The event is free and tickets are required. Book via the NEoN Festival Walking Tour on Eventbrite.
Joseph Delappe, Professor of Games Research at Abertay, has been a co-lead on the RE@CT: Social Change Art Technology Symposium which is running from 6 – 9th November. Artists, activists and scholars from all over the world are coming to Dundee to address a diversity of issues and practices engaging activist digital art. We hope to see some of our Abertay students there getting involved in these important discussions. The event is free and tickets are required. Book via Eventbrite.
Other festival highlights include Take (to) The Streets, a poster exhibition of emerging artists curated by Lecturer Mona Bozdog featuring work by Abertay PhD student Amy Parent and Abertay alumni Caitlin Smith and 'Sous le Web, le Plage!' an online exhibition curated by Senior Lecturer Martin Zeilinger.
