Electronic Superhighway Exhibition – The Whitechapel Gallery


“A major exhibition bringing together over 100 works to show the impact of computer and Internet technologies on artists from the mid-1960s to the present day.”

Whilst researching net-art, I stumbled across the previous exhibition at The Whitechapel Gallery. This exhibition encompasses elements of what I am discussing within my essay. It highlights developments, advances, and changes within art post-internet to now where our daily lives are consumed by being online.


73 artists exhibit within this exhibition of exploration of media, including Amalia Ulman. The exhibition tells the story of the relationship between art and the internet. From 3D animation to social media, the internet has become a contemporary medium for artists. The area I am particularly interested in is the use of the internet in the 21st century to challenge objectification of the female and to promote feminist values. This exhibition links screens and their narratives, and explores those progressions.
