In this first episode of Recentering series, we chat with Creative Producer, Kate Farrell and Assistant Producer, Willow Bowen, from York Mediale.
Bethan Carrick | Ed MiMi Lamine | 25 November 2021
Drawing on their national and international projects, they discuss how new media art allows them to explore humanity and nature, topics that are central to their organisation.
York Mediale is an International New media arts agency, originally founded in 2016 as a biennale festival. From their Yorkshire base, they represent artists and artworks, deliver new commissions and live events as well as are engaged with long-term interventions that support holistic artistic development. It is their aim to stimulate new thinking by working around the blurred edges of digital art.
