The Latin(o) American Digital Art Project will be running two Twitter Galleries during March and April 2015.
The Galleries are based on our popular Cities in Dialogue exhibition that we held in October 2014, and which brought together the work of four leading Latin(o) American digital artists:
The Twitter Galleries are aimed both at people who attended the Cities in Dialogue exhibition, workshops, concerts and talks in person, and who want to engage more with the artworks, and also anyone who couldn’t attend, and would like to discover these exciting works.
Throughout the month of March, we are running a Twitter Gallery retrospective of the exhibition, dedicating one week each to each of our artists and the works they exhibited at the exhibition. The project will award a prize to the most-favourited image and the most-re-tweeted image, so we encourage everyone to make the most of this opportunity to make their favourite artwork the winner!
Then, throughout the month of April, we’re premiering images and video files of Brian Mackern’s exciting new Residence Artwork that he created whilst he was here in Liverpool, This Too Shall Pass. These exclusive images, shared for the first time, will give you a rare glimpse into an artwork as it evolves, and give you the chance to feed into the artwork yourself.
All the images will be tweeted from our @latamcyber account, so make sure to follow us to see these exciting images. Using re-tweets, favourites, and the hashtag #citiesindialogue, we’d like to encourage you to comment on and vote for your favourite image. Also, you’ll notice that the content of Brian’s artwork is the city of Liverpool itself, so if any of the venues are familiar to you, or if you have any of your own photos of the venues that you’d like to share, please tweet them with the #citiesindialogue hashtag.
We will be offering as a prize a signed poster by the artist as well as a first edition copy of the entire work on CD to the lucky winner whose tweet is selected from all those who participate.
Throughout the month, we’ll also be integrating tweets from the artist himself explaining the concept behind the artwork, and towards the end of the month there will be a live Q&A Twitter chat with the artist himself on Wednesday 22 April from 12.00-2.00pm
We will be drawing everything together in Storify, so if you miss any of the tweets as they happen, you can catch up on everything at: https://storify.com/latamcyber
