Description Dawnbreakers brings together contemporary artists of mixed disciplines and uses this moment in history as the backdrop to the exhibition, drawing parallels with its transformations and underlying tensions. These artists negotiate the heritage and tradition of ‘the artist’s hand’ within an unfolding new age. Dawnbreakers does not illustrate what is meant by digital or analogue. Neither is it an homage to the fears associated with Y2K paranoia or a yearning for bygone times. In a manner echoing the dramatic transitions that occurred during the ‘fin de siècle’ period of the 19th century, these artists’ works take different forms but encapsulate a common feeling, as our age meets tomorrow’s world.
