Chester Visual Arts (CVA) is thrilled to launch two exciting interactive commissions from Chester-based artists Robin Hunter and Emma Lucy.
Both works are inspired by the major V&A touring exhibition ‘Chance and Control: Art in the Age of Computers’, which CVA brought to Chester in 2019. They are part of CVA’s Learning Programme which encourages arts engagement and participation in Cheshire by working with artists, schools, youth organisations and adult learners.
CVA’s aim is that adults, children and families will engage and enjoy these original cultural activities created by local artists, whether at a computer or as a printed colouring sheet.
Aimed at younger children and their families, Emma Lucy has created a series of vibrant colouring sheets and accompanying crossword that celebrates the history of computer art, as explored in Chance and Control: Art in the Age of Computers. Referencing key artworks and technologies used by the pioneers of digital art, Emma has used her signature illustrative flair to create an engaging educational activity for all the family.
Robin and Emma’s commissions are launched as the charity continues to develop its plans to support artists and realise high-quality exhibitions and projects in the coming year.
