CULTURE AND PRACTICE
15 April - 22 May 2016
Libre Graphics Culture and Practice is the first exhibition of its kind in the UK, bringing together work by artists and designers whose creative practices are influenced by free/libre and open–source software (FLOSS) – software whose source code is freely shared. Offering a unique view of open source culture, the exhibition documents and describes the activities of individuals and collectives at the forefront of the international community that supports the Libre Graphics movement.
The exhibition is inspired by and coincides with the Libre Graphics Meeting, an annual gathering of software developers and users, hosted this year by Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design, 15 – 18 April 2016. Learn more at libregraphicsmeeting.org
