Joanna Vestey: Conditions of Knowledge

Joanna Vestey continues her photographic exploration into spaces and objects that relate to the production and holding of knowledge. Best known for her large format interior images made in physical spaces of academia such as libraries and lecture theatres, these new abstract works, in contrast, are responsive to the fleeting and ephemeral nature of electronic media.

Shown at The North Wall for the first time, Conditions of Knowledge explores the digitisation of knowledge and the way in which screen-based media and digital networked storage allow for new kinds of engagement. Through the use of both physical and digital forms, a space is created to consider methods of the past alongside future possibilities for the accessing and sharing of knowledge.

Exhibition Tour: Tuesday 25 September

Join us in the gallery from 6.30pm – 7.30pm for an “in conversation” event between Paul Hobson, Director of Modern Art Oxford, and Joanna Vestey.
