DLAC network is delighted to announce that the retrospective volume on Latin American new media arts, arising from the Cities in Dialogue exhibition, has now been published. The Cities in Dialogue exhibition was held in in FACT in conjunction with the Liverpool Independents Biennial in 2014.
The book covers the exhibition in detail, as well as the other events that were held during 2014 and throughout 2015, including workshops, artist talks, Twitter galleries and the Artist in Residence and his activities. One chapter is dedicated to each artist and the works they presented at the exhibition: Brian Mackern from Uruguay, Bárbara Palomino from Chile, Marina Zerbarini from Argentina, and Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga from the US.
There is also an extensive chapter about the exciting new residence artwork created by Artist in Residence Brian Mackern. Entitled This Too Shall Pass// Affective Cartographies, this work is based on footage obtained through a series of unplanned journeys along Liverpool’s urbanscape. The gathering of information and recording of sound and visual material during these journeys is then remixed in this artwork by different parameters (volume levels, transparencies, zooms, fragmentations, crossfadings, speeds of timelines, etc.) controlled by Liverpool’s “socio economic historic curve” of the last century. The book includes full colour images throughout, including exclusive images of works in progress, as well as excerpts of interviews with the artists.
Copies of the book can be purchased from the publisher’s website: http://liverpooluniversitypress.co.uk/products/73650
We will be organizing a book launch in the UK in the autumn and in Latin America in spring 2017, so keep an eye on our blog and on our Events page for further details.
