Artist Bettina Fung has invited Gabrielle de la Puente of The White Pube to join her for a conversation inside the Gathering Space of Fung’s new digital artwork, The Sea Changes Into Words.
As half of The White Pube (with Zarina Muhammad) de la Puente publishes writing about contemporary art and video games and campaigns for change in art institutions. Most recently, through a national billboard poster project TWP have proposed ideas for a new art world, addressing urgent issues such as colonialism, systemic racism and pay disparity in museums and galleries.
During this conversation event Fung and de la Puente will discuss some of these subjects and other topics raised in Fung’s text-based game The Sea Changes Into Words, commissioned by Aspex. The event will take place entirely within the Gathering Space: an open source, non-hierarchical digital space, designed by Fung to facilitate collaboration, learning and exchange.
To join the live event in the Gathering Space you will need to complete The Sea Changes Into Words online game, accessed through Aspex’s website from Thursday 20 May 2021. The first play through of the game usually takes at least 30 minutes. We recommend playing the game prior to this event or starting to play at 6.30pm if you have not played before. To take a shortcut tell the receptionist you have been here before and you are here for the Gathering Space.
For this event you will not be seen or heard through a camera or microphone.
