Details

Michael Takeo Magruder is an artist pushing new ground in digital arts. He works with real-time data and digital archives, creates immersive environments and virtual worlds.

His practice explores concepts ranging from media criticism and aesthetic journalism to digital formalism and computational aesthetics, deploying Information Age technologies and systems to examine our networked, media-rich world.

Over the last 20 years, Michael’s projects have been showcased in over 250 exhibitions in 35 countries, including in 2010 when he was selected to represent the UK at Manifesta 8: the European Biennial of Contemporary Art.

His VR artwork, 'New Jersusalem', is currently being exhibited at the Gazelli Art House, and in 2019 he will become only the second living artist to have a solo exhibition at the British Library.

The Fine Art Research (FAR) unit will be welcoming Michael to the Brookes School of Arts for a discussion about his extraordinary practice that transcends art, science and philosophy.

This free event is open to everyone! (You don't need to be a part of Brookes). Book your tickets here and all are welcome.
