Digital Art and Computer Art Exhibitions

Event Two at the Royal College of Art

Event Two at the Royal College of Art, London (2019).

Interact Digital Arts has been running digital and computer art exhibitions and events in Leicester and elsewhere for over 10 years. One of our core aims is to bring world-class digital art to Leicester and promote Leicester's digital artists beyond the city. Most exhibitions are accompanied by an "Interact Live" audiovisual event and many have a workshop programme.

Between 2011 and 2012 Interact ran its own Interact Gallery space as part of Fabrika in Leicester. Following this project, in 2014 we began a working relationship with the LCB LightBox Gallery at the LCB Depot in Leicester. This has so far resulted in 11 full exhibitions at the LCB, together with many pop-up shows, live events and workshops. We have a number of exhibitions in the planning stage that we hope to be able to host at the LCB Depot in the future, before presenting the connecting narrative behind the exhibition series as part of a retrospective.

Interact Digital Arts has also organised exhibitions at the Royal College of Art, London; the 729 Art Cafe in Guangzhou. China; the BCS in Moorgate, London; Brighton Digital Festival; and at the V&A Digital Design Weekend.

Many of the items we have exhibited over the years have been retained and they form the basis of our own art collection. Custodianship of CAS50 Collection of digital artworks we began putting together in 2018 has been transferred to the Computer Arts Archive.
