A major new touring exhibition of digital artworks by leading pioneering and contemporary female digital artists will launch at Phoenix Brighton at Phoenix Brighton this September. This new curatorial project explores methods of working with new technologies and the themes that bring these artists together.

From drone choreography, sequencing of bacteria and brainwave art to hacking reality, social media activism and telepresence, this exhibition highlights the contribution of female artists in shaping what digital art is today. The exhibition title references the challenges faced by female artists in this field where they are often under-represented.

The exhibition features existing and newly commissioned artworks by Ghislaine Boddington, Susan Collins, Laura Dekker, Anna Dumitriu, Bhavani Esapathi, Julie Freeman, Kate Genevieve, Sue Gollifer, Luciana Haill, Nina Kov, and Gordana Novakovic.

The exhibition is curated by Gordana Novakovic, Anna Dumitriu and Irini Papadimitiou, is funded by Arts Council England, The Computer Arts Society, and UCL Department of Computer Science and supported by Women Shift Digital, Phoenix Brighton and Watermans.
