Claire, Thea and Jordana have all had work published in the new special issue of the online art journal Interartive dedicated to art and new media in Latin America.
Claire and Jordana’s piece is entitled ‘Latin(o) American Digital Art: Some Observations on Exhibition Spaces, Social Media, and Europe-Latin(o) American Collaborations’ and stems from their work on the AHRC-funded project on Latin(o) American New Media Art which covered the work of four leading artists from Latin America and the US: Brian Mackern from Uruguay, Bárbara Palomino from Chile, Marina Zerbarini from Argentina, and Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga from the US. Thea’s piece is entitled ‘”Netweaving” en el Arte Digital Latin@’ and explores the work of three different new media artists who draw inspiration from indigenous textiles in their work: Bolivian-American Lucia Grossberger Morales, Chilean-American Guillermo Bert and Colombian-American Monika Bravo.
The special issue also contains lots of other exciting artists and their projects and includes an online exhibition of their work. Guillermo Bert’s Encoded Textiles work is also featured in this section of the issue.
Congratulations to Marisa Gómez and the Interartive Team on putting it all together and taking Latin American new media art to a wider audience.
