Electronic Superhighway - Art & The Internet Exhibition To Open Late Jan

A new exhibiton in Whitechapel charts 50 years of artists and the internet

Electronic Superhighway is a collection of work examining the influence computer and internet technologies have had over artists, spanning from 1966 to the present day. Showing at the Whitechapel Gallery, the show - intriguingly arranged in reverse chronological order - gathers together works from over 70 artists, including peices from Cory Arcangel, Jeremy Bailey, James Bridle, Constant Dullaart and Oliver Laric, Roy Ascott, Judith Barry, Lynn Hershman Leeson and Ulla Wiggen. 

The video flyer, below, suggests the exhibiton will be a seizure-inducing explosion of pixels, screens, games, dystopias, utopias and forgotten dreams of tomorrow...

Electronic Superhighway runs from January 29th - May 15th, with tickets starting at £12. More info on times, tickets and dates is available on the Whitechapel Gallery website.
