Virtual exhibition presented as part of Vector Festival 2020: Online Edition

Curated by Katie Micak and Martin Zeilinger

Featuring works by Hiba Ali, Jennifer Chan, Ronnie Clarke, Hilarey Cowan, Thirza Cuthand, Maya Ben David, Steph Davidson, Hannah Epstein, Jord Farrell, Dimitris Gkikas, Milumbe Haimbe, Fay Heady, Amay Kataria, Samuel Kiehoon Lee, Gina Luke, Ben McCarthy & Cale Weir, Amelia Merhar, Roberto Santaguida, Juli Saragosa, Jordan Sparks, Lee Tusman, Syrus Marcus Ware, and Qirou Yang.

Presented on a new custom-built online platform, this year’s festival exhibition integrates a diverse mix of interactive netart, art games, machinima and video works, live streams from artist studios, web tool hacks, and other artworks that can be experienced – in a time of lingering COVID-19 lockdown measures – digitally. Not every artwork featured in the exhibition may have been created in direct response to the pandemic, but what unites them all is their resonance with themes such as digital connectedness, overcoming isolation, building and maintaining virtual relationships, and coming to terms with the many new realities of digitally mediated, ‘socially distanced’ life online.
