Europeans: one of Rhizome's flagship programs, Seven on Seven, is on the move. We're pleased to announce that the first international edition of the event is to be held at the Barbican Centre, London, on October 27, 2013.
Seven on Seven brings together luminaries from the fields of art and technology to work together for one day, in pairs, to create new projects – be they applications, concepts, artworks, products, or whatever they imagine. The results are unveiled the following day at the public conference.
Previously hosted with Rhizome's affiliate the New Museum, Seven on Seven has drawn sell-out crowds for the past four years, serving as an important meeting point between disciplines. Previous participants have included Dennis Crowley (Foursquare co-founder), David Karp (Tumblr founder) and the late internet activist Aaron Swartz, along with artists Jill Magid, Ryan Trecartin and Taryn Simon.
The participants in the London edition of Seven on Seven will be announced on October 1st, with early bird tickets on sale for £25 until then.
