Slade Centre for Electronic Media in Fine Art


Slade Centre for Electronic Media in Fine Art

The Slade Centre for Electronic Media in Fine Art (SCEMFA) opened in 1995 and has provided the opportunity to focus on research into Electronic Media and Fine Art, contributing to debate on a national and international level. In 1997 SCEMFA presented Collision, a public lecture series by artists, writers and curators working with interactivity, telematics and digital works, followed by Spontaneous Reaction, an Arts Council funded week-long seminar which took a critical look at interactivity with participants drawn from a variety of disciplines including psychology, architecture and computer science. Throughout 1998 SCEMFA collaborated with Channel 4 (UK) to organise a monthly event called Cached which was held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London. Funded by the Arts Council, this series investigated the conceptual and practical issues of making work for the Internet through a series of artists presentations.

With origins in the 1970s with Malcolm Hughes's Computer and Experimental Department at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London.
