New media art is more than machine-generated sensory experiences. Our docent workshop series speaks to your curiosity… How did a particular artist conceive their works? What’s the technology research that underscores a work? Why are the operational procedures as important as the work itself?
The WMC_e6 Docent Workshop series takes students to the gallery’s backstage, meet the artists to learn about their creative processes, and eventually to co-write the guided tour together from different angles. Each student will be provided opportunities to deliver docent in the exhibition, to demonstrate their new knowledge by leading intriguing tours for the visitors.

Media art is everywhere in our urban landscape. It is time we turned the nature and workings of media art into common knowledge. Start with becoming a trained docent…
