Talk on Cross-Disciplinary Art at Gazelli Art House

Updated: 26 February 2014

Last night, Sedition participated on a panel on cross-disciplinary practices in art, design, science and industry. The panel explored the emergence of cross-disciplinary practices in education and in the museum sector and commercial art industry. There was a vibrant discussion on emerging practices and approaches of students and artists, and the impact of digital technology on collaborative practice where audiences also become creators. We continue to rely on categories in order to discuss practices, and there is a need to develop new terms for discussing contemporary transdisciplinary (rather than cross-disciplinary) work. Sedition is a reflection of the evolution of artistic practices to provide a platform for artists working in digital and new mediums to distribute their work beyond the traditional gallery space.
