Radical Software

Women, Art & Computing. 1960–1991

Radical Software considers the influence of computer science and the adoption of its technologies by female artists working before the internet was publicly accessible. Presenting the work of over thirty artists, it spans a diverse range of mediums from early computer drawings made in the 1960s and some of the first examples of computer-generated images in experimental films from the 1970s to the application of home computing technology in video, sculpture and installation work from the 1980s. A principally analogue exhibition about digital art, it focuses on the decades that preceded the rise of the world wide web and the proliferation of digital information and images that ensued, shaping artistic production in the following decades.
