The Transformations tour in collaboration with Greenwich University brought young people to the exhibition. The event was hosted by multimedia artist and Director of Art in Flux Aphra Shemza and Olive Gingrich who provided an exclusive tour of the Art in Flux: Transformations hybrid exhibition held at National Gallery X. The exhibition presented seven areas of societal change that contemporary media artists address through their artistic positions. Whether questions of cultural heritage (Aphra Shemza), our relationship with data (Analema Group) or our wellbeing (Kira Zhigalina), Transformations offers a space for discussion on the possibilities of how the media artists address the need for societal shifts towards a more inclusive and human-centred society. Taking the National Gallery as a historic starting point, Art in Flux will present artistic strategies within this context, as a culmination of a three year residency.
The exhibition features work by Analema Group, Aphra Shemza, Jake Elwes, Kimatica Studio, Kira Zhigalina, Magik Door, Natasha Trotman, Olive Gingrich, Shama Rahman and Stuart Bacthelor.
