14 Nov - 05 Dec
The exhibition MANIPULATIONS showcases works which reflect on how artists and designers highlight and educate the public into understanding the agenda of our society’s governing. Particularly, in our time of the reigning digital capitalists [and the systems they wish us not to understand], MANIPULATIONS ask questions: Who are the tool makers and who are the tool users of our societies? What does a citizen need to participate effectively in the dynamics of today’s systems?
MANIPULATIONS, running from November 14 to December 5, is the first exhibition viewed in this built platform and exhibiting local and international artists Lauren Lee McCarthy & David Leonard, Andreas Refsgaard, Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson, Saša Nemec, and Danielle Heath.
Alongside the group exhibition further programming is found under the site’s calendar and includes a public artist talk by guest lecturer, Stine Marie Jacobsen, a live show with Lauren Lee McCarthy and David Leonard [during the opening], public artists talks and talks connected to Gothenburg University’s Academy of Art and Design’s AI.Design.01 Masterclass.

ABOUT E.A.T. SPATIAL
E.A.T. Spatial is a gallery format experiment created as a Fused Reality, which in this case – is a tied-to-the-physical-site digital gallery departing from ICIA’s art space on Ringön in Gothenburg, Sweden. This fused format creates a semi-physical site-specific digital experience for the viewers to share views and ambience. The platform developed by Studio Alight is part of project, E.A.T. hub [Experiments in Art and Technology] which is a collaboration with the Institute of Contemporary Ideas and Art (ICIA). E.A.T. aims to practice across the borders of art and technology where we may discover and learn from these seemingly separate fields while working iteratively and evolving continuously.
This exhibition platform is not static. E.A.T.Spatial is and will be continuously developed as the MANIPULATIONS exhibition runs. This is the start of this Fused Reality experiment that blends the ways we can visit, can view and can perceive works of art. It, also, provides a space for multiple "eyes" gathered into one "point of view." And begins to ask if we surveils our digital world together what may we shift within us?
We invite anyone to contact Studio Alight for potential experiments, labs, tests, plays, tries, collaborations and manipulations.
The exhibition does not have any closing hours.
[All stated in Gothenburg time / Central European Time (CET)]The exhibition runs from 14 Nov – 05 Dec, 2020.
