Adventures In Digital Art

Contains Art, Watchet, UK

14 July — 12 August 2018

Lumen was delighted to partner with Contains Art, established in 2012 as a not-for-profit social enterprise in an isolated, rural, deprived part of Somerset. West Somerset has the lowest social mobility in the whole of the UK, and Watchet is the most deprived ward in the district. Contains Art was founded in this context, in the firm belief that who you are, what you have, and where you live, should not restrict your opportunities to see, take part in, and create some of the best art in the world. The establishment of Contains Art by the local community responded to an almost complete lack of opportunities for people to access and engage with high-quality art in the area.

We brought three interactive artworks to the shipping container-sized gallery, alongside hosting a seminar to talk about art and technology.

Many thanks to the artists involved in this exhibition for their support.
