  • Intuition and Ingenuity – a show of artwork celebrating the life of Alan Turing. #UK #enigma #geekgirl


    Exhibition Dates: 17 – 26 February, 11am – 6pm 
    Venue: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, Brighton, BN1 4AJ 

    Intuition and Ingenuity is a group exhibition that explores the enduring influence of Alan Turing, the father of modern computing. The show is currently touring the UK, and comes to Lighthouse for Brighton Science Festival, following rave reviews from exhibiting at Kinetica Art Fair in London.

    2012 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alan Turing, one of the greatest minds Britain has produced. Between inventing the digital computer and helping to decode the German Enigma machine, to founding the science of artificial intelligence, the world today would have been a very different place without his ideas.

    This exhibition, which takes its name from Turing’s own writing, brings together a number of important artists, from digital art pioneers to emerging contemporary artists.

    21 February, 7pm

    Complementing the exhibition are talks led by artists, boredomresearch and Alex May, and co-curator of the exhibition Anna Dumitriu on 21 February.

    Intuition and Ingenuity is touring the UK during Alan Turing Year, showing at Lighthouse during Brighton Science Festival, plus many other venues around the country. It is curated by Sue Gollifer, Nick Lambert and Anna Dumitriu.
