About the speaker
Jasia Reichardt is a writer on art and an exhibition organiser. She was Assistant Director of the ICA in London, 1963-71, and Director of the Whitechapel Art Gallery, 1974-76. She taught at the Architectural Association, as well as other colleges and has written several books. She is interested in art that encroaches on other fields: science, music, and literature, and has spent many years following up the connections between art and technology.
Among her exhibitions staged in Britain, the best known is Cybernetic Serendipity (1968) about the computer and the arts. Later, she worked for ARTEC in Japan, and her other exhibitions involving technology included Electronically Yours, 1998, Tokyo, and Nearly Human, 2015, Gdańsk.
Bronaċ Ferran is a writer and curator.
