On Thursday 11 June, from 6pm-9pm we are running a Cities in Dialogue workshop at the Escuela de Defensa Nacional in Buenos Aires, Maipu 262.
This workshop is hosted by the Licenciatura en Artes Visuales (Catedra Zerbarini) from the Universidad Nacional de las Artes. It brings together students and scholars at the UNA with scholars from the University of Liverpool around the theme of Cities in Dialogue.
The workshop provides an introduction to the Latin(o) American Digital Art project, focusing on the Cities in Dialogue exhibition and related activities. Following on from this, we will hold a showing of the residence artwork developed during the project by Uruguayan artist Brian Mackern, entitled This Too Shall Pass.
Next, the workshop involves interaction from the participants via the Cities in Dialogue twitter galleries. Using mobile phones and/or PCs, the participants will be invited to comment on the artwork and also suggest and contribute images to the artwork.
Finally, the workshop concludes on issues such as curatorial practice in digital art, and the possibilities and limitations when combining social media with digital art.
The event is free to attend, and all are welcome.
