Cellular World: Cyborg-Human-Avatar-Horror
Cellular World is a group exhibition featuring works by nine different internationally renowned artists that introduces the key thematic concerns of this year’s Director’s Programme.
We live in a world where technology plays a large and changing role in everyday life. In an age of social media, most of us will have avatars – versions of ourselves – online, prompting us to question how we are represented and how we represent ourselves. At the same time, we are at a historical moment where the future frequently appears as a precipice between utopia and dystopia.
The works on show explore questions of identity and individual and collective consciousness at a time of prolific social change and uncertainty, when reality can often seem more like science fiction.
Curated by Richard Parry, Director, Glasgow International.
Includes works commissioned by Glasgow International. Supported by Glasgow Museums, the Henry Moore Foundation and the Swiss Cultural Fund UK.
