CLAS is delighted to announce the forthcoming Cities in Dialogue Exhibition, to be held in Liverpool from 13-21 October this year. Held as part of Claire Taylor’s AHRC-funded project on Latin(o) American Digital Art: Exhibitions and Audience-Participation Workshops, and in conjunction with FACT and the Liverpool Independents Biennial, the exhibition brings together the work of four Latin American and Latino artists who each engage with the city space. Ranging from maps through to soundscapes and participation on the streets, the work of each artist aims to get the spectator to re-think the city, and discover the hidden memories it holds.
The exhibition kicks off with a launch event and sound installation by Artist in Residence for the project, Brian Mackern on Monday 13 October, entitled The Santa Rosa Storm. On Tuesday 14 October Chilean artist Bárbara Palomino will present the participatory project Memoria Histórica de la Alameda followed by Argentine artist Marina Zerbarini who will present her Tejido de memoria on Wednesday 15 October
The following week sees Brian Mackern present his new work, 34°53′S 56°10′W || 53°24′N 2°59′W // Port Interfaces on Monday 20 October, and then, on Tuesday 21 October Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga will present his video game installation, A Geography of Being and Mediated Idols (Robots).
As well as the exhibitions, there will also be artist talks, workshops and other events. For further details of all these events, see
