Zaiba Jabbar explored the artistic and creative community working with face filters and augmented reality, redefining notions of identity and reality. She shared her curatorial experience in the field, introducing some of the emerging artists and practices which are transforming contemporary visual culture and the role of networked images. She was joined by Maria Than, Scarlett Yang and Mathilde Rougier in a discussion about augmented realities, sustainability and feminism, period awareness and activism. The Screen Walk was followed by the live stream workshop on upcycling with AR by artist Mathilde Rougier.
Screen Walk with Zaiba Jabbar
Screen Walks is a new series of live-streamed artist/researcher-led explorations of online spaces and artistic strategies designed to illuminate a thriving – often overlooked – digital cultural scene. A new online collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, UK and Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland.
Zaiba Jabbar is an award-winning director, independent curator and founder of HERVISIONS (est. 2015). With over a decade of experience in the film and media sectors, her curatorial practice with HERVISIONS is an investigation into how people in the margins are using technology to create art outside of traditional contexts and making space for themselves in the digital environment. Jabbar was curator in residence at LUX in 2018 and is a board member of Abandon Normal Devices.
HERVISIONS is a London based femme-focused curatorial agency, celebrating and promoting artists working across emergent technologies and platforms, with a strong focus on the intersection of art, technology and culture.
