During his time in Liverpool in October last year, Brian Mackern, the Artist in Residence of our project on Latin American digital art, developed a whole new artwork, based on his experience in the city, using images, sounds and videos he had taken of Liverpool during his residency. The result is an exciting new multimedia artwork, called This Too Shall Pass.
Throughout April, one or two images per day of This Too Shall Pass are being disseminated by @latamcyber on Twitter.
On Wednesday 22 April from 12.00-2.00pm, we’ll be connecting up with Brian on Twitter for a Q&A Twitter Chat. This is an opportunity for you to ask him about his artwork, his experiences in Liverpool, what he got out of his time here, or indeed anything you want to know about the art scene back in Uruguay and Latin America more broadly.
Given that the topic of This Too Shall Pass is the city of Liverpool itself, we’re also encouraging you to share your own photos of the city, and so contribute to a work of art in progress. This is a really exciting opportunity to become co-creators of an art work!
To participate, you can drop in at any time throughout the two hours of the Twitter Chat. We’ll be holding it in Room 101-102 of the Roxby Building, Liverpool University, from 12.00-2.00pm on Wednesday 22 April. If you can’t make it along in person, you can also connect up from any computer or your mobile phone and participate that way. Follow the discussion using the #citiesindialogue hashtag.
Free cakes and soft drinks will be provided at the event!
