The next Arts Interactive Group get-together will take place tomorrow (November 9) featuring Corné Eksteen as guest speaker.

Eksteen will be exploring the often antagonistic relationship between technology and the visual arts. Historically the rise of new technology has always had a significant impact on traditional artistic modes of expression such as painting. These new technologies have often given birth to new technical and stylistic approaches in the art making process

In our current culture where the focus is on process and concept driven art, he will explore the opportunities and application of information technology in painting.

Eksteen is a Durban based painter whose most recent solo exhibition: Assimilation included an "AV" / augmented view mobile app designed and built by the artist himself.

Arts Interactive takes place on November 9 at 18h00 for 18h30 at the College Rovers Rugby Club, Kings Park Stadium, Jacko Jackson Drive in Durban. Entrance R100 pp. RSVP soonest for catering purposes to
