Pioneering Australian digital artist Joe Hamilton is one of seven artists selected to participate in the London Art Fair’s Photo50 exhibition – a part of the curated Art Projects section of the fair which showcases the freshest contemporary art from across the globe.
Entitled “Immaterial Matter,” the guest-curated presentation of contemporary photography features 50 works that examine the increasingly indiscernible distinction between the digital and the material. The exhibition features traditional lens-based work exhibited alongside digitally generated imagery, video, and web-based work.
According to the curators, Charlie Fellowes and Jeremy Epstein, “’Immaterial Matter’ will demonstrate the irrevocably altered state of photography as a classification in the post-internet era, in which images exist in potentially infinite alternative manifestations.
“This exploration is enacted playfully at times, in work that attempts to situate itself on the boundary between the ascribed realms of the digital and material, and progressively elsewhere, in works that describe new ontologies and geographies that are developing as a result of the prevalence of free circulating digital information.”
Photo50 is on show at the London Art Fair until January 19. For more information visit the London Art Fair website here.
