Somerset House Studios continues its partnership with MUTEK and the British Council on Amplify Digital Arts Initiative, a residency that connects and empowers an active network of women-identifying artists and professionals working in the digital arts, sound and immersive storytelling sectors in Canada, Latin America and the UK.
As part of the residency, we present a selection of digital artworks, some of which were originally presented as part of MUTEK’s virtual exhibition Distant Arcades, alongside live-streamed music performances and artist presentations and discussion exploring how we create art in a time of crisis.
