Genius - Context & Collaboration in Art and Technology

About the speaker

In 2017 Tegan Bristow lists herself as three things: a South African artist and developer of interactive digital installations; Senior Lecturer and Head of the Interactive Digital Media at the Digital Arts Division of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg and Director of the Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival since 2016.

Bristow has just completed PhD on Decolonising Aesthetic Practices in Technology Art Practices in Africa, which she wrote with the Plantery Collegium at the Center for Interdisciplinary Arts at Plymouth University in the U.K. In 2015 curated the Post African Futures exhibition with the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg, in extension of her PhD. Outside of her curatorial and development practices with art, culture and technology in Africa, Bristow has exhibited her own practice widely – most prominently “Meaning Motion” at the Wits Art Museum. Bristow has also published various journal articles and book chapters on her research and practice, most recently in Critical African Studies in 2017. Please see Bristow’s website for more detail.
