This exhibition brings together a diverse range of work by digital artists from De Montfort University in Leicester, UK and Guangdong University of Technology in Guangzhou, China. It is part of a developing collaboration between the two Universities.

The work featured includes print-based, video and interactive work from both Universities, together with a new Virtual Reality artwork by internationally-known artist Ernest Edmonds, a Virtual Reality experience based on the Pailou Gate at GDUT and the inaugural showing of a new collection of print-based and digital work by GDUT International Professor and DMU Visiting Research Fellow, Sean Clark.

In presenting this unique collection of artworks we hope to further develop the relationship between GDUT and DMU and create new opportunities for international collaboration between individual artists from the East and West.

The exhibition opens on Monday 23rd April 2018 at 7pm with an evening of short talks and refreshments in the 729 Art Cafe gallery space.

Produced in collaboration with the Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort University.
