Gordon H Brown Lecture: Anthony Byrt
Simon Denny's Surveilism: an Accelerationist Art for Accelerated Times
In this annual Art History programme lecture, Anthony Byrt will look at Denny's most significant recent projects, including Secret Power 2015, The Founder's Paradox 2017, and Mine 2019. Byrt will focus particularly on the way Denny's work examines the growing and pervasive impact of ‘surveillance capitalism’ on our lives.
He will also discuss how Denny and a handful of his contemporaries internationally are deploying monsters and the grotesque to create new visions of how digital technologies are reshaping the world around us.
When: 6pm, Tuesday 19 November
Where: City Gallery, Civic Square, Wellington
The lecture will be followed by refreshments.
