GENDERS: Shaping and Breaking the Binary Mixed-reality, gaming, identity and art

John O'Shea is responsible for Creative Direction at Science Gallery London, a new gallery at London Bridge (part of King’s College London) where artists are commissioned to work in relation to emerging science and technology. An artist by vocation and alumni of Hull School of Art (Time Based Media), his works have been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at the V&A. During the last decade he has devised and developed exhibitions with a diverse range of individuals and organisations, emphasising artistic and cultural experiences that do not fit easily into pre-defined categories. 

Augmented and Virtual Reality are becoming increasingly creative tools to explore various aspects of the human experience. They can connect us to different places and different experiences and open up new possibilities. In this series we will hear from artists and curators how they explore reality in their work and what questions arise. The series will examine how different perspectives of reality in an artistic and creative context can be used to explore themes of responsibility, ethics and identity and how it can help us understand abstract, distant concepts.

Don't miss out on the full series and book your tickets now!
