Three installations that explore ‘Human Nature’ come together to feature as the centrepiece of York Mediale 2020.

The exhibition is jointly curated by York Mediale and York Museums Trust and will be displayed at York Art Gallery from Wednesday, 21 October to Sunday, 24 January 2021.

Visitors are invited to discover through these installations how the human body is hardwired, synchronised and inextricably linked to nature.

York Mediale is an international biennial digital arts festival that celebrates York as the UK’s first and only UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts.

The independent arts charity was founded in 2014 and launched its first festival in 2018. York Mediale 2020 is a mixture of experiential digital art conceived for and influenced by 2020.
