The original Cities in Dialogue / Ciudades en Diálogo first started out in Liverpool, UK in October 2014, and brought together four leading artists: Brian Mackern (Uruguay), Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga (US), Bárbara Palomino (Chile), and Marina Zerbarini (Argentina).
This roundtable at the historical Cabildo in Montevideo will continue our collaborations with artist Brian Mackern, whilst also bringing into dialogue the work of new participants. These include Rosana Carrete, Director of the Cabildo de Montevideo, who will talk about the curation of the museum and its collections; Amalia Lejavitzer fromUCU, who will give an insight into a heritage project relating to the port city of Montevideo; and artist and documentary-maker Guillermo Amato who will present a selection of “videos pictóricos” taken in the bay of Montevideo.
As well as these talks, there will also be a talk by curators Jordana Blejmar and Claire Taylor giving a retrospective on the Liverpool experience. Audience feedback activities, including live tweeting and input into the works, will also be featured.
The roundtable will conclude with the launch of Claire Taylor’s new book Place and Politics in Latin American Digital Culture (Routledge, 2014)
