Digital Art on LSE Impact Blog

Brian Mackern’s This Too Shall Pass

Claire’s project on Latin(o) American Digital Art has been featured on the LSE’s Impact Blog. The LSE Impact Blog is a hub for researchers, administrative staff, librarians, students, think tanks, government, and anyone else interested in maximising the impact of academic work in the social sciences and other disciplines. It aims to encourage debate, share best practice and keep the impact community up to date with news, events and the latest research.


Claire was asked to contribute a piece describing her recent experience of using Twitter galleries to promote engagement with the Cities in Dialogue exhibition featuring 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.

In the piece, Claire describes how Twitter curation can provide an audience engagement that is less cumbersome – and more easily trackable – than traditional ‘exit surveys’, as it allows for immediate feedback through likes and retweets. She also explores how it can help give a sense of the artwork as dynamic when used to encourage participatory artworks, with ‘spectators’ contributing images and becoming active co-creators.
