Event Navigation

As part of York Mediale 2018, this landmark exhibition will be the most ambitious and large scale media art exhibition York has ever hosted.

Strata, Rock, Dust, Stars will showcase ground-breaking moving image, new media and interactive artwork inspired by William Smith’s geological map, which transformed the way in which the world was understood when it was created 200 years ago.

The artists, Isaac Julien, Agnes Meyer-Brandis, Semi Conductor, Phil Coy, Liz Orton, David Jacques and Ryoichi Kurokawa, examine not only geological strata, but also explore a timely and contemporary poetic layering of human curiosity, exploration and reflection on the universe.

Co-commissioned between York Museums Trust and York Mediale, and curated by Mike Stubbs, Director of FACT, Liverpool.
