Join us as our panel discusses what it means to encourage and experience immersion through digital art environments.

Bill Viola’s video installations are immersive environments that envelop the viewer in image and sound, always employing technology that was contemporary at the time of the work’s conception.

Using our Bill Viola / Michelangelo exhibition as a starting point, our panel question the limitations and opportunities of both immersive and digital art. How does digital art create immersive environments? What do we understand immersive art to be now and how has it developed alongside digital practices?

Speakers to be announced.
