The series explores the new realms of digital art collecting, creation and exhibition. By bringing together experts in the fields of digital art, curating, art collecting and design, Art In The Digital Age will discuss, and ask interesting questions about, the future of the art world.
With the introduction of new technologies, the way contemporary art is experienced is undergoing significant changes. Media platforms, display techniques and softwares are redefining the way art is experienced and collected. The influence of the digital has structurally changed aspects of the art world, bringing art into contact with new spaces, disciplines and audiences. It has also led to questions around the artwork itself, such as: how can digital works be valued, stored and securely exchanged? What is the materiality of a digital artwork?
The first talk in the series is titled Art Collecting For The Home and takes place on 17 June from 7-9pm at Shoreditch House. It looks at how art is being displayed and integrated into contemporary domestic spaces. The event takes the form of a panel discussion between experts from four specialist areas.

We are happy to announce a new MoDFA logo design, thanks to the generosity of award-winning, creative Dutch artist, Marlon Paul Bruin. This delightful logo will be in use immediately and will be added to all our products across all media.
The MoDFA is all about great contemporary art, fused and produced through a mix of new technology and traditional creative thought processes.
It’s no secret that humans love to create, even from the earliest dawn of civilization. Now, in the dawn of the 21st century the doors of creativity has snapped open for all to experience. “Digital” is the title used to define and characterize this new media art-form, that is produced largely in a cyber world. But, although virtually made, these works of art are every bit akin to traditional art forms, minus the dripping paint, the mess and fumes of unhealthy, environmentally unfriendly chemicals. And, more importantly, these art and images are visually stimulating and truly collectible. Whether they are made through sensors or graphic tools, they are all human art.
