QUAD Co-Lab Season

Anna Bunting-Branch, Warm Worlds And Otherwise: an exhibition that relates to the artist’s interest in the encounters between feminist practice and science fiction, using painting, digital animation and Virtual Reality to explore ideas of worldbuilding, embodied perception and technologies of representation. 

Dryden Goodwin, Alongside: is a newly commissioned film, a sensory study of the working life of a social care worker, supporting three vulnerable disabled adult clients as they access the world beyond the day-care centre.
