Codes of Practice - Panel Discussion and Drinks Reception

Chaired by Dr Jo Applin, a specialist in modern and contemporary art and lecturer at The Courtauld , The discussion will investigate the use of technology in the work of contemporary female artists. 

Alongside Sarah Alagroobi, a student whose work is exhibited in the SURGE show will be the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Artist in Residence Rachel Ara who’s work draws on her extensive career as a Computer Systems Designer. Awarded to pioneering artists working in technology, Rachel is a Near Now Fellow who will provide a key insight into what it means to be a woman artist creating and leading in this field. Katy Hessel, founder of the Great Women Artists Instagram account, which now has a staggering 18k followers and counting, will be bringing her expertise to the panel on the importance of celebrating past, present and future women artists. This event is free and open to all.
