The Electronic Superhighway Exhibition brings together over 100 works to show the impact of computer and Internet technologies on artists from the mid-1960s to the present day.

The exhibition title is taken from a term coined in 1974 by South Korean video art pioneer Nam June Paik, who foresaw the potential of global connections through technology. Arranged in reverse chronological order, Electronic Superhighway begins with works made at the arrival of the new millennium, and ends with Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T), an iconic, artistic moment that took place in 1966. Key moments in the history of art and the Internet emerge as the exhibition travels back in time.

The exhibition features new and rarely seen multimedia works, together with film, painting, sculpture, photography and drawing. From Cory Arcangel, Jeremy Bailey, James Bridle, Constant Dullaart and Oliver Laric, to Roy Ascott, Judith Barry, Lynn Hershman Leeson and Ulla Wiggen, over 70 artists spanning 50 years are included.

For families with young children, please note some works in this exhibition contain sensitive material. Please contact the Gallery for further information. A sound trail for younger visitors, devised specially by artist Jenny Moore for the exhibition, is available to stream or download via Soundcloud.
