Systems Art Symposium

26 - 27 October 2007

Exhibition: 20 October - 17 November 2007
Private view: 26 October

In 1968 the artist and writer Jack Burnham prophesised that, 'a Systems Aesthetic will become the dominant approach to a maze of socio-technical conditions rooted only in the present'. This symposium investigates this claim by responding to, provoking and presenting a sustained discussion on systems-theory and art. Speakers discuss art’s relationship to the operation of social systems, provide the basis for an account of the diverse art practices that occur after modernism in terms of a systems aesthetic and explore a definition of artistic media which is not materially specific.
