Latamcyber is delighted to announce that Claire has been awarded a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Follow-On Funding for Impact and Engagement scheme. The grant will fund a project led by Claire entitled Latin(o) American Digital Art: Exhibitions and Audience-Participation Workshops.
The project involves follow-on events, activities and outputs that stem from Claire’s recent AHRC-funded Fellowship on Latin American Cultural Production Online, from 1990 to the Present. The activities will be structured over the course of an 11-month period and include:
• a 2-month Artist in Residence Scheme, held jointly at the University of Liverpool and FACT art gallery
• an original artwork developed by the Artist in Residence
• a visit of 3 further Invited Artists for a shorter, 10-day period
• an exhibition, entitled Cities in Dialogue, under the Liverpool Independents umbrella of the Liverpool Biennial, 2014
• a series of shared themed workshops with the Liverpool-based community media projects, Veterans in Practice, Tenantspin and Freehand.
Brian Mackern, from Uruguay, will be the Artist in Residence, and he will be joined by Invited Artists Marina Zerbarini from Argentina, Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga from the US and Bárbara Palomino from Chile. Latamcyber look forward to welcoming the artists and to working with them.
We will be announcing further details of the events nearer the time, both in blog posts and in the ‘Events’ section of this blog. Watch this space!
