The tour was led by the artist herself Barbara Nessim and Douglas Dodds, curator of the exhibition and  Senior Curator in the Word and Image Department at the V&A.

Barbara Nessim was one of the first professional illustrators to master the computer as an artistic tool.

This exhibition examined her sketchbooks, hand-drawn and computer-generated illustrations, paintings, collages, textiles, and fashion.

Several members attended the subsequent lecture by Douglas Dodds at the Bard Graduate Center’s Lecture Hall, From Analogue to Digital: Documenting the History of Computer-Generated Art and Design.
