This July, London will host The Art Conference (TAC), bringing together a programme of international keynote speakers from the worlds of technology, art and culture. TAC is founded by contemporary art curator Tina Ziegler in partnership with The IWSC Group. Bermondsey’s The Ugly Duck, a three-storey 19th century warehouse, will be filled with film screenings, panel discussions, exhibitions and digital art installations.
The exhibition hall will be transformed into a maze of mini-solo exhibitions, virtual reality experiences and digital art installations from both local and international artists. World renowned light artist and poet Robert Montgomery displays his much-loved light installations. Colin McMaster shows a collection of original acrylic and hand-cut wood paintings while artist Jordan Seiler exhibits his Public Ad Campaign work where visitors can test how the artworks transform when viewed through an iPhone. Jose Montemayor presents Virtual Awakening, an immersive, life-after-death virtual reality experience.
Pairing the works of local creators alongside internationally-acclaimed visionaries will allow the conference to evoke achievable aspiration in attendees.
TAC #01 will debate and deconstruct change on the subjects of social engagement through street art and how technology can enrich our experience with art and culture. Our inaugural conference explores the evolution of street art with a curated weekend of keynote presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities for those with an interest in the future of this global movement.
