Roll up! Roll Up! The Giant Electronic Art Show will at The Lightbox gallery and museum in Woking from the 15 July to the 2 November 2014. For the first time the work of seven unique multimedia artists will be brought together in an exhibition that will include both low tech and high tech interactive pieces with one common goal not usually associated with art exhibitions – that visitors do touch the exhibits.
The exhibition will appeal to people of all ages with installations designed to engage and delight the senses. Much like the Victorian fairgrounds that would dazzle spectators with newly discovered electricity, The Great Electronic Art Show will be a modern take on the fairground tradition of making visitor enjoyment and participation at the heart of the exhibition. Colour and sound will be the key themes with the latter featuring everything from ‘noisy bottles’ to a ‘noisy’ ping pong table.
The exhibition is being designed by Guest Curator Hamish MacGillivray who has more than 25 years experience working in museums. He commented that the exhibition will:
“Have something for everybody. For families they will be able to touch colourful and sometimes noisy exhibits; for artists they will see how digital technology is being made accessible; and for DIY enthusiasts they will be inspired by the displays and can try experimenting at home.”
Hamish, Guest Curator
