What is Digital Art?
Digital art grew out of artists experimenting with different art forms such as photography, film, lighting, sound, projection, online media and now into digital technology.
It can best be summarised as: an artwork where digital technology is an integral part of the making or showing of that artwork – it would not be the same artwork if you removed the digital element.
We want everyone try something new, and then try it again! Our digital programme is as varied as it is future-facing – you are guaranteed to experience something new every time.
What to expect
- Live performances using a mix of sound and visuals
- Fusions of dance and movement using technology
- Visual art exhibitions and large-scale outdoor installations
- New commissions and presentations across the galleries, theatres and public spaces
We are also home to the Quays Culture, a digital art programme for Salford Quays and MediaCityUK’s outdoor public spaces that presents an artistic programme of ambitious new art.
