Cellular World was part of the Glasgow International 2018’s Programme and hosted at GoMA. The exhibition brought together nine different internationally renowned artists to craft a dialogue of identity in the digital age. Online personas, collective consciousness, digital mediation, and the boundaries between utopian and dystopian emerged to question identity at a time of prolific social change and uncertainty, when reality can often seem more like science fiction.
