Modern art has had a close historical relationship with poetry and
performance since its formation. Electronic poetry has developed a
strong element of performance, an implicit demand for some form of
exhibition. This series of events explores the relationship between
the visual, the poetic and the electronic in art.

The sessions begin with a conversation in which invited speakers
discuss issues relevant to the Collection and to electronic and
visual poetry. This is followed by a short performance or reading of
an electronic poem, and an open discussion. Laptop computers with
video projection showing interactive electronic works are also placed
within the galleries.

The speakers are theorists and practitioners in a variety of media
and virtual curators, and include John Aiken, Malcolm Bowie, Patrick
Burgaud, John Cayley, Penny Florence, Elizabeth James, Mark Leahy,
Tim Mathews, Brigid McLeer, Sharon Morris and TNWK (Kirsten Lavers
and cris cheek).

Virtual presence/practitioners/curators/theorists: Sandy Baldwin, N
Katherine Hayles, Camille Utterback, Talan Memmott, Rita Rayley,
David Rokeby, Alan Sondheim, Noah Wardrip-Fruin.

Organised by Penny Florence and Tim Mathews, with John Cayley.

In collaboration with The Slade School of Fine Art, SCEMFA and the
Department of French, University College London
