SALON NOIR: Art in the Time of Digital Delirium

In conversation: Vanya Balogh and Martin Sexton

Friday 21 June, from 6.30pm

Vanya Balogh

The topic, ‘Art In The Time Of Digital Delirium’,  considers digital imagery within the field of virtual art and erotica. It will explore the politics of deception, independent virtual curation, the rise and fall of NFTs and some other issues, touching on the current digital zeitgeist. The speakers’ conversation will be in open flow and will raise the question as to whether contemporary, ultra modernist art is reaching its extinction point?

Vanya Balogh is an independent artist/curator/photographer who is known for curating the London Car Park exhibitions at Cavendish Square and exhibitions at the Venice Biennale. He exhibits with The London Group and has recently been appointed curator of Cross Lane Projects gallery in Shoreditch.

Martin Sexton is an artist/experimental writer/film maker who has exhibited widely including at Tate Britain and a solo at the 56th Venice Biennale. He was awarded the Tithe Grant, judged by Sir Alan Parker, for a short film featuring Princess Diana. Martin also produced the first global Sonic Art project, ‘We Love You’, which featured many who went on to exhibit in ‘Sensations’  at the Royal Academy.
