Initiated in 2019, arebyte On Screen is a platform dedicated to artist videos, digital experiences and curatorial interventions and programming utilising web-based formats. AOS invites artists and curators from around the world to experiment with new forms of creating, curating and presenting art online.
The artists and curators of AOS present past projects, work-in-progress and new work; often addressing current trends and theoretical discussion in art, the work on AOS also branches into political, economic and social topics as a way of mapping a collective digital landscape.
Following in the footsteps of Storage-un.it, which ran from 2015-17 in arebyte’s storage space in Hackney Wick, AOS continues research in online and virtual spaces for curation and artistic production. Viewable on aos.arebyte.com and via a dedicated screen in arebyte Gallery’s window in London, AOS is open to the public 24/7.
Linked to arebyte’s yearly onsite programme, AOS creates an expansive network of artists and curators working locally, nationally and internationally across emerging media.
