IMPAKT TV with LaTurbo Avedon

On being an artist in the Metaverse

7 December 2022
20:00 — 21:00

Location: Online: Planet IMPAKT

Join us on 7 December for the last IMPAKT TV episode of the year with LaTurbo Avedon, a non-binary artist and curator who exclusively performs as an avatar in the virtual world.

A digital native and an avid user, curator and artist within the digital space, Avedon was born around 2008/9 (though in interviews they mention that things started to make sense around 1995). The non-binary figure that is LaTurbo, is both the artist and the project, embodying not only the blurring of boundaries we are all experiencing between the online and offline spaces, but also the obscurity between the artist and the art itself.

Central to LaTurbo Avedon’s work are questions regarding the agency of digital beings and bodies, the unclarity between the online and offline spaces, and the importance of immaterial experiences. They are pioneers in looking into the fringes of internet cultures to discover shifts in society. In this episode we will share clips and images from Avedon’s work and digital artefacts that inspired their practice.

This IMPAKT TV episode is hosted by Daniela Tenenbaum (Assistant curator at IMPAKT), Michelle Franke (head of PR at IMPAKT).


IMPAKT TV is live-streamed every first Thursday of the month at Planet IMPAKT. For each episode, we invite an artist, journalist, researcher or writer to discuss their work and the latest news and trends in art, tech and media, must-see exhibitions and events. The IMPAKT TV editorial team consists of Arjon Dunnewind (General Director at IMPAKT), Michelle Franke (head of PR at IMPAKT), Rosa Wevers (PhD candidate Gender Studies at Utrecht University) and Friso Wiersum (European Cultural Foundation, Expodium).
