Exhibition: The New Art of Making

Friday 11th December 2015 9am - Sunday 7th February 2016 5pm 107 Charing Cross Road Exhibition, Free Event

The New Art of Making, a free exhibition which explores digital craftsmanship, curated by Futurecity in partnership with Price & Myers’ Geometrics, will open in The Gallery at Foyles, London, from 11 December 2015 until 7 February 2016.

How we build our world is changing. A revolution is underway in making and building art and architecture, with technology now allowing us to create and make with an unprecedented freedom. At the centre of this change is the ‘designer-maker’; a cross-disciplinary master craftsman, who fuses sophisticated digital design tools and computerised fabrication with industrial, architectural and engineering expertise to define new ways of working with traditional materials – wood, stone, steel and glass.

This emerging practice is digital craftsmanship – a radical new practice of rendering sculptural form, blurring the line between artist, designer and maker. It is an approach pioneered by Price & Myers’ Geometrics team, and supported by Futurecity through an innovative approach to commissioning art in the public realm. The New Art Of Making exhibition realised by Futurecity and Price & Myers Geometrics, charts the evolution of digital creativity and fabrication over a sequence of recent collaborations featuring key groundbreaking projects and major sculptural commissions.

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Level 5, 107 Charing Cross Road

Exclusively for Foyles, she has written about some of these Scottish words, that head up each chapter of the book.
