Maria Than - Desktop Tour

Maria Than
Desktop Tour

Desktop Tours is a series that invites artists from arebyte Gallery’s yearly programme to talk through their computer or laptop desktop, including key folders, bookmarks, and software they use in their work.

The artists talk about the work produced for their exhibition at arebyte as well as new content they are working on, their processes, past experimentations, and a look into their virtual mind.

In this Desktop Tour, Maria Than invites us into her computer to look at early material from the installation.

Maria Than’s exhibition Homage to Quan Âm is open at arebyte until 19 May 2024: more info HERE.

Facilitated and edited by Marc Blazel.
