ANAT 30 for 30

For our 30th anniversary, 1998- 2018, ANAT commissioned 30 for 30, a collection of watershed moments capturing the impact of our work over our lifetime. Drawing upon one case-study for each year (see below), 30 for 30 is an excellent snapshot of ANAT’s success in introducing artists to new technologies, research, and ways of working, and in removing barriers to creative experimentation.
