Drawing together graphic design, digital art, illustration and interaction design, the New Year will see the launch of a new project from Alpha-ville, in the form of its once-day Alpha-ville Exchange in east London.

The organisation initially launched as a multi-venue ‘Festival of Post Digital Culture’, before evolving into a series of live events and screening programmes in 2012.

This summer, the organisation facilitated the incredible Syn_, an ambitious AV piece by Berlin-based Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa.

For 2014, Alpha-ville is debuting its Exchange day, a series of events that aim to help London’s art, tech and creative types meet and share ideas and inspiration – hence the ‘exchange’ of the name.

Work will be presented across disciplines including graphic design, illustration, interaction design, generative design, digital and software art, mixed media art, data visualisation and motion graphics.

The day will take in talks and live demonstrations, while the evening will feature a more relaxing programme of music performances.
