Kinetica Art Fair 2011




Kinetica Art Fair is produced by the Kinetica Museum and is the first of its kind in the UK. It brings together galleries, art organisations and curatorial groups from around the world who focus on universal concepts and evolutionary processes though the convergence of kinetic, electronic, robotic, sound, light, time-based and multi-disciplinary new media art, science and technology.

The fair provides an international platform for museums, collectors, curators and the public to view and buy artworks in this thriving and advancing field. Alongside the fair there will be special events, screenings, tours, talks, workshops and performances.

For 2011 a Kinetica feature exhibition and events programme will explore the evolution of the human body, brain, mind and consciousness.

The Kinetica Art Fair 2011 is the UK’s only art fair dedicated to kinetic, robotic, sound, light and time-based art featuring new and ground breaking work, will take place from 3 – 6 February 2011 at the Ambika P3 space in London. The feature exhibition focuses on the Evolution of Consciousness and will explore the progression of the human body, brain, mind and consciousness in reference to our place in the universe.

Kinetica Art Fair 2011 Feature Exhibition – The Evolution of Consciousness
The Kinetica feature exhibition will explore the evolution of the human body, brain, mind and consciousness in reference to our place in the universe, where we are at this time, and what it means to be human. The works exhibited aim to increase awareness to the evolution of us as a species and expose various dimensions in our quest to further human potential. The multi-disciplinary works will be representative of: matter, waveform, space, time, gravity, spirituality / religion, harmonics, destruction, genetic engineering, modification, behaviour and relationships.

Alongside the fair and to compliment the Feature Exhibition there will be a daily events programme of performances, talks, presentations and workshops entitled ‘Body, Brain and Consciousness’ which will explore how new and ancient ideas, tools and technology can interact with and extend the capacities of the human body and the brain, and how the effect of these may impact on the evolution of human consciousness.

Kinetic art is art that has a life of its own. Pioneered by world famous artists including Maholy Nagy, Jean Tinguely, Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Calder during the 1900s, modern contemporary kinetic and electronic artworks utilise and warp technology itself, to explore, nurture and comment on our evolutionary processes and challenge scientific and universal exploration.
