ARTIST TALKS: On the final two days of SIKKA2022 (23 & 24 March,
7-9pm), Tashkeel presents a series of artists talks using this year’s theme ‘Celebrating Art, Celebrating Growth’ to redefine new media within the
premise of interactivity as a mode of thinking,
not just technology. Four Dubai-based
artists whose work blurs the lines of possibility and complicates the idea of
the ‘author’ take us through their work and exchange
thoughts on notions of time, place and the spirit of collaboration. Dissecting the
relationship between the physical and virtual, they will challenge the increasingly complex relationship between humans and their social context.
