Tuesday Talk: Minds & Machines

The panel discussion Minds & Machines featured represented artist Jake Elwes, Helen Ho (Collection Manager, DSL Collection), Samantha King (Head of Programme at VIVE Arts), and Catherine Troiano (V&A Curator of Photography).


This conversation coincided with Jake Elwes' highly anticipated inaugural solo show, Data • Glitch • Utopia, at Gazelli Art House. Furthermore, it celebrated the commissioning of a new iteration of Elwes' groundbreaking work, The Zizi Show (2020), for the newly opened Photography Centre at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), on view until April 2024.


Samantha King, Head of Programme at VIVE Arts, brought her expertise in the intersection of art and virtual reality to the discussion. As a key collaborator in the partnership exhibition between Gazelli Art House and VIVE Arts, she shed light on the UK premiere of Cheng Ran's immersive work, Always I Distrust (2020), showcased in our Project Space, in conversation with Helen Ho (Collection Manager, DSL Collection).


Catherine Troiano, curator at the V&A, provided valuable insights into the significance of Elwes' commissioned artwork, The Zizi Show, within the broader context of the museum's commitment to showcasing cutting-edge contemporary photography. Troiano's expertise in curating exhibitions that explored the evolving role of technology in art and culture enriched the discussion.
