HISTORY

SLADE CENTRE FOR ELECTRONIC MEDIA IN FINE ART

The Slade Centre for Electronic Media in Fine Art
Fine Art
(SCEMFA) was opened in 1995. The centre provides opportunities for research into electronic media and fine art with the goal of contributing to debate on national and international levels. The Slade had previously been home to Malcolm Hughes's Computer and Experimental Department in the 1970s.

In 1997 SCEMFA presented Collision, a public lecture series by artists, writers, and curators working with interactivity , telematics , and digital works. This exhibition was followed by Spontaneous Reaction, a week-long seminar funded by the Arts Council , which took a critical look at interactivity with participants from a variety of disciplines, including psychology , architecture, and computer science .

Throughout 1998, SCEMFA collaborated with Channel 4 UK to organise Cached, a monthly event held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts , London. Funded by the Arts Council, this series investigated the conceptual and practical issues of producing art for the internet through a series of artists presentations.

ART COLLECTION

The Slade art collection was started when the yearly prizes awarded to top students was combined with a collection scheme in 1897 and the Summer Composition Prize and the Figure and Head Painting Prizes began to be kept by the school. Works by students and staff of the Slade School of Fine Art
Fine Art
form the basis of the UCL Art museum today.
