SPARTA - The Future of Art – Dr James Fox
Artists have always been early adopters of new technologies. But in the last few years new technologies have appeared more quickly than ever before. In this lecture, art historian Dr James Fox will explore how today's artists are embracing the latest digital media — including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence and NFTs — to redefine both art and the art world. Should we be excited about these dramatic changes or concerned? Are they a flash in the pan, or here to stay?
