The original Cities in Dialogue / Ciudades en Diálogo first started out in Liverpool, UK in October 2014, and brought together four leading artists: Brian Mackern (Uruguay), Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga (US), Bárbara Palomino (Chile), and Marina Zerbarini (Argentina).
We are now taking the exhibition to South America! Our first stop will be the historical Cabildo in Montevideo on Monday 8 June, where we will participate in a round table with artist Brian Mackern, whilst also bringing into dialogue the work of new artists. If you’d like to come along, see more details on our Roundtable Event Page.
We’ll then be in Buenos Aires on Wednesday 10 June where we’ll be running a panel on Digital Poetry and Digital Artefacts at the world-famous E-Poetry Festival. For more details on the panel, see our E-Poetry Panel Event Page.
Then, on Thursday 11 June we’ll be giving a workshop on digital art and curation at the UNA in the Escuela de Defensa Nacional. For more details on the workshop, see our Cities in Dialogue Workshop Page.
All of the events are free to attend, and there is no need to book, so just pop along to whichever event you like.
If you can’t make the events in person, then join us on Twitter! Use your computer, mobile phone, tablet or other device to join in the discussion, and even influence the shape that an artwork will take.
