Tamar Clarke-Brown is a London based curator, artist and writer. Currently producing and curating projects with the Arts Technologies team at Serpentine, her interdisciplinary work centres around experimental futurisms, technologies and diasporic practices.
Tamar's work involves commissioning new artworks, events, research and R&D projects engaged with experimental worldbuilding and exploring the untapped civic and social potential of technologies. Her recent commissions include developing ‘unconscious controllers’ as new engagement prototypes with artist and game designer Danielle Brathwaite Shirley. These use facial scanning and eye tracking to allow player’s unconscious decisions to control and navigate a game connected to Black trans lives, and the Third World. She has also worked on a disorienting and multilevel world-building video game, web3 tokens, and an exhibition at Serpentine North Gallery led by multidisciplinary artist Gabriel Massan that explores contemporary Black-Indigenous Brazilian experiences amidst colonialism and capitalism. The project experiments with memory as a transformative material, exploring what it could mean to engage and empower players as stakeholders and agents towards wider cultural shifts.
Tamar is one of the Dazed 100 (2022), and has worked with institutions including Autograph ABP and NTS Radio and presented at the ICA, South London Gallery, Tate Galleries, Yale School of Art, Somerset House, Kadist (Paris), Bard and more.
