The John Hansard Gallery’s Stephen Foster in conversation with Dawnbreaker curator, Juan Bolivar, 23 April 2010.
When the new millennium rolled in, predictions of a computer catastrophe the Y2K problem amounted to nothing but fear. Never before, perhaps with the exception of the Moon landing, had the world watched a singular moment with such intensity and foreboding. In one second, The Industrial Age became The Information Age.
Dawnbreakers brings together contemporary artists of mixed disciplines and uses this moment in history as the backdrop to the exhibition, drawing parallels with its transformations and underlying tensions. These artists negotiate the heritage and tradition of the artists hand within an unfolding new age.
