Microworld & Fusion: Adventures in Digital Art

Eureka! The National Children's Museum

The Lumen Prize is delighted to be producing two exhibitions at Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, Halifax, UK: Microworld with Genetic Moo until June 3rd and Fusion: Adventures in Digital Art from June 9 to Nov 25th.

Fusion: Adventures in Digital Art will feature 14 works by 10 Lumen artists, who were each finalists or winners of the competition during the past six years; five are based in the UK, two each from France and the US, and one from Germany. All are being brought together for the very first time. Fusion opens on 16 June at the Halifax attraction and will be hosted in Eureka!’s Spark gallery until 25 November 2018. Watch the teaser video here.

 

We are delighted to be working with Eureka! to bring Fusion to life. Every year Lumen is reaching more artists and institutions to connect with a wide variety of audiences. Raising the understanding and awareness of digital art is integral to what Lumen does. We want to create memorable experiences that make conversations happen and foster community interaction. We are hoping to inspire the next generation of artists to look differently at the technology that they use in their everyday life.

 

Leigh-Anne Stradeski, Eureka! Chief Executive comments: “We are privileged and proud that The Lumen Prize for Digital Art has chosen Eureka! as its home for the next six months and can’t wait for our visitors to see it, interact with it, enjoy it and go home inspired

 

“Art takes lots of forms and many of our younger visitors and their families may never have visited a traditional gallery or thought it was for them. At Eureka! we love to show how things can be done differently in the 21st century. We hope having an installation packed full of interactive digital art will inspire and excite visitors as to what can be possible using technology, rather than simply through methods such as paintings and pencils.”
