It's art...but not as we normally know it in Derry

Future Artist Makers: The Exhibition Nerve Visual Gallery, Londonderry Until Feb 26; Tues-Sat 10am-5pm and Sun 12pm-6pm

By Elizabeth Baird

This bang-up-to-date exhibition focuses on exciting digital technology.

The event brings together 19 artist/makers from across Europe and will feature artworks created by 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC routers.

They include ceramic pots, biohacking experiments where computer chips are implanted into the human body, invented musical instruments, miniature 3Dmodels of iconic digital consumer objects, screens and etchings that have been laser cut and interactive story-telling on iPads.

The exhibition is culmination of a year-long programme of art - making, exhibiting, training and networking.

A community and events programme will accompany the exhibition, offering young people and families art-making experience.

MAC International Ulster Bank prize

MAC, Belfast.

Until Feb 19, 2017; daily 10am-7pm

If you haven't seen this exhibition in the MAC there's still plenty of time and it's well worth making the effort.

Congratulations are due to all those involved for bringing this selection of work by 18 international artists to Northern Ireland. The prize was pretty substantial and the competition attracted an enormous number of entries from which 1,000 from 40 countries, were shortlisted. The overall winner was London-based Slovenian artist Jasmina Cibic.

Expect artworks that are surprising, amazing, disturbing and thought-provoking.
