ARTISTS TALK --Kate Armstrong

Sun Feb 02, 2003 00:00 - Thu Jan 16, 2003

Artists Talk

As part of the Techlab digital media artist in residence program at the Surrey Art Gallery Kate Armstrong will give an Artists Talk on Sunday, February 2nd, 2003 at 2pm.

Kate will present work-in-progess from Catalogue, a net.art work that uses description and image to interrogate cultural and mechanical forms stemming from online shopping.
