Friday 29 September, 5 to 7pm
‘CONNECT’ Illustrated talk / workshop on digital art for artists – Louise O’Boyle
This workshop / talk with Louise O’Boyle for artists has an emphasis on use of digital formats for both making art and its use in promotion and dissemination. The session will explore the theme of the curated work she has selected for an online exhibition. The exhibition is themed with a simple word – ‘CONNECT’ – in it she proposes to select 4-5 contemporary digital artworks to feature in the online exhibition that will be hosted both by the Westport Arts festival and the Customs House Studio website. These works will introduce the variety of interesting and intriguing ways digital artists are connecting with the wider public through their use of datasets, social media platforms and new technology. The public lecture will further expand on this theme and discuss what are some of the key trajectories in this field currently.
Part of Westport Arts festival 2017, all day Friday Louise will explore the potential and wonder of this new form of expression in Westport Town Hall with both primary and secondary school students, details at; westportartsfestival.com/friday
