Following on from Claire’s AHRC-funded project on Latin(o) American Digital Art, she was asked to provide a piece for the Institute of Cultural Capital, drawing on the findings of the project. The Institute of Cultural Capital (ICC) is a strategic collaboration between the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) which aims to influence policy by informing debate on the value of cultural interventions.
Entitled ‘How can you bring digital art alive in a city – and why?’, Claire’s piece looks at what can be done to bring digital art to life within the city space, and shares what was learnt from her project and its work with artists from Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile and New York
The piece also provides a summary of the Latin(o) American Digital Art Policy Document, which Claire co-wrote with Jordana Blejmar, who was the RA on the project. The Policy Document offers a series of observations and recommendations regarding the exhibition spaces for digital artwork, the uses of social media for curation and engagement, and future possibilities for Europe-Latin(o) American artistic collaborations.
