Dirty New Media took place on Thursday 21st March at The Barber Institute of Fine Arts. It was one of the most adventurous exhibitions that I’ve curated!
Thanks go out to:
- The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, for taking a chance and including something wildly different to their usual programme
- Vivid Projects, for asking me to curate this exhibition
- University of Birmingham for including Dirty New Media as part of their Arts and Science Festival, and for including videos in their Illuminate outdoor projections
- Pete Ashton, Sam Underwood, Leon Trimble and Ben Neal for providing lots of support and equipment at the last minute
- Keith Dodds, for his awesome work on the programme and other graphic design
- All of the performers, lecture-deliverers and artists that got involved (more below)
- And last, but not least, thanks to you, the audience, for travelling from the far reaches of England to attend Dirty New Media! You helped to make it a success!
