Next Art founder Natalie Sun is a creative technologist and art tech curator/producer. An artist herself, she was a previous recipient of the Eyeo Festival Artist Fellowship and studied Contemporary Curation with Goldsmiths, University of London at The British School in Rome.
Previously, as a creative technologist in the ad industry, she worked with clients like Google and Target as a technical creative to integrate artful uses of technology in interactive campaigns. During this time, she realized the creative industry’s lack of exposure to truly interesting, cutting-edge creativity in tech.
As a result, she began curating and producing shows to inspire the creative community with the artistic possibilities of technology. Next Art was born out of her passion for integrating art with technology and supporting the artists working in the new digital space.
