A reminder to our readers that the Being Human Festival exhibition at Liverpool opens next week, in which Claire’s Latin American Digital Art project will be participating.
As part of Being Human, the UK’s national festival of the humanities, the University of Liverpool is holding a series of events including an exhibition in the Gallery Space, Ground Floor, 19 Abercromby Square. Included in the exhibition is This Too Shall Pass// Affective Cartographies, the multimedia art work developed by Brian Mackern during his residency in Liverpool in 2014.
In this piece, Brian addresses the representation of places and the different aspects of the localization of ‘being’. For Being Human, the public is encouraged to play around on the artwork, and also to feedback their own thoughts about ‘being human’ on the artwork postcards that accompany the exhibition, which can be posted into our low-tech post box.
Claire will hold a tour and Q&A of the art work on Wednesday 4 November at 4.00pm. The event will also double-up as an Iberian and Latin American Week event, and is open to all those students, staff, and members of the general public who are participating in the week – a celebration of the cultures and languages of the Hispanic world, including Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and Basque.
If you can’t make the Q&A itself, the good news is that you can still visit the exhibition from any point from the 4th November – 18th December.
