PACT Centre For Emerging Artists Presents PACT Salon: artifice x interface
PACT Centre for Emerging Artists will present a creative exploration into the authenticity of art and the art-making process in artifice x interface on Saturday 13th October.
Curated by Bonnie Cowan and Alex Stevenson, artifice x interface will see 14 of Sydney's most talented emerging artists come together to explore, discover and question the artifice of art through performance, live music, sound, light and video installation.
artifice x interface will also consider the various forms of interaction and interface within artmaking, and examine how these interactions between human and technological collaborators alter the artmaking process.
Cowan said, "Alex and I are stoked to be curating an evening of such diverse artistic practices: from hands that gesture for your touch, to aesthetic textures projected onto found objects, and everything in between! We think it'll be a rad event; come and see for yourself!"
Cowan is a concept-centric, process-driven performance artist whose artistic practice often centres around the ineffable connection between humans thanks to her intense fascination with personal interactions. Stevenson is a multi-disciplinary creative practitioner whose practice is driven by a feminist inclination and whose production work is focused on fostering safe, diverse and progressive communities.
PACT Salons are one-night-only mini festivals that showcase eclectic new works from compelling emerging performance, visual and media artists. Salons are where performance, party and critical dialogue collide to form a unique interactive experience.
