Event description

Description

Artist Simon Pope (b. 1966, England) is preoccupied with the social dimension of human relationships - to nature, technology, and to each other.
Spanning some twenty-five years, this work has taken the form of software, walking, conversation and writing, and often involves participants from other disciplines and cultures. His latest projects grapple with how participatory art can engage with new materialist philosophy, and the concept of the 'more-than-human'.
Formerly a member of the net.art group I/O/D, he represented Wales at their first exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2003. Pope was a NESTA Fellowship awardee (2002-05), a Reader (Professor) in Fine Art (2005-10) and is currently an Artist Fellow at Queen Mary, University of London (2014- ). He was awarded a doctorate in Fine Art from the Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford (2012-15) and supervises MFA and PhD students for Transart Institute in Berlin and New York. He currently lives in Toronto.
