New Art West Midlands 2016 is a selected exhibition of work by graduates of West Midlands art schools that takes place at venues across the region between February and May each year. The New Art West Midlands 2016 exhibition was selected by Sonia Boyce (artist), John Stezaker (artist) and Katharine Stout (Head of Programme, ICA London) and features work by 43 artists.
Matt Parker’s audio-visual practice focuses on his field work that investigates the infrastructure of the Internet. In a recent artist-in-residence at The National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park his work has been tracing the history of digital technology from the early computer Colossus at Bletchley Park to the Cloud technology of today.
Matt is one of five New Art West Midlands prize winners. They have all been awarded £1000 to further their practices.
