Persistence of Vision - FACT
Exploring the nature of vision and memory
88 Wood Street
until – 30 August
Informed by scientific research and inspired by historical developments in media technology, Persistence of Vision explores the interplay of vision, memory and media. The exhibition presents contemporary artists’ works that repurpose current image technologies, as well as those of our recent past, to playfully review and re-imagine the devices through which our memories are stored and revived. A family friendly drop in space in FACT’s Media Lounge will provide hands-on activities where visitors can experience how seeing is shaped by memory, and how memory is inﬂuenced by how and what we see.
Curated by Karen Newman (FACT) and Andreas Brøgger (Nikolaj Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, Denmark).
Exhibition delivered in partnership with Nikolaj Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, Denmark.
