Championing new ideas in contemporary art since 1970, the Serpentine has presented pioneering exhibitions for half a century from a wide range of emerging practitioners to the most internationally recognised artists of our time. Across two sites only 5 minutes apart, in London’s Kensington Gardens, the Serpentine Galleries present a year-round, free programme of exhibitions, education, live events and technological innovation, in the park and beyond.
Future Art Ecosystems Live
A series of online talks emerging from the launch of the Serpentine’s inaugural Future Art Ecosystems report.The first issue of Future Art Ecosystems, produced by the Serpentine R&D Platform in collaboration with Rival Strategy, addresses technologies’ impact on the arts and focuses on the new infrastructures being built around artistic practices engaging with these advanced technologies. In the spirit of FAE, these conversations aim to make visible the invisible infrastructures and systems behind artists’ work, as the report itself considers the future of art and technology from an infrastructural perspective.
