Digital RevolutionThe Barbican's big summer exhibition tackles the impact of digital technology in the arts since 1970 and considers how it might develop in the future in the light of new technologies such as augmented reality, artificial intelligence, wearable technologies and 3D printing. This multimedia extravaganza includes work from across the creative spectrum: artists, filmmakers, designers, musicians, architects and game developers amongst others. The Barbican has also commissioned new pieces from artists Umbrellium (Usman Haque and Nitipak 'Dot' Samsen), Universal Everything and will.i.am especially for the exhibition, as well as a collaboration with digital art installations created in collaboration with Google.

About Barbican Centre

Described by the Queen as 'one of the wonders of the modern world' , the Barbican Centre has also been voted 'London's ugliest building'. Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
