News

On Thursday 25 June, The Arts Catalyst will launch a campaign on the Art Fund’s crowd-funding platform ‘Art Happens’, aiming to raise £15,000 for a new Centre of Art, Science and Technology, in the heart of Kings Cross.

We need your support!

Rewards, created by international artists who have worked with The Arts Catalyst, will be offered to those contributing different amounts towards this exciting initiative.

Over the weekend of 6 June, The Arts Catalyst invited artists, designers, scientists, writers, technologists, academics, and activists to join a hands-on workshop led by designer and researcher Veronica Ranner at Furtherfield.

Living Assemblies was an opportunity for participants to investigate the coupling of the biological material silk with digital technologies, to think about future applications.

We are delighted to announce that Alec Steadman has joined the Arts Catalyst as Curator. Alec was previously Artistic Director at Contemporary Image Collective (CIC), Cairo, and before that Curator in Residence at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, where he co-curated The 338 Hour Cineclub.
 
Previously he participated in De Appel Curatorial Programme, Amsterdam, co-curating Three Artists Walk into a Bar…, De Appel Arts Center and various locations, and Why Stay If You Can Go?, Stedelijk @ De Appel Arts Center.
