Digital Latin America Symposium
June 7 & 8, 2014
Register today to save your space!
516 ARTS announces Digital Latin America Symposium for the opening
weekend of the Digital Latin America exhibition. The Symposium will
showcase presentations on creative innovation using digital media as
well as artistic and scientific crossovers in contemporary Latin
American new media art.
Connecting individuals, cultures, traditions and social histories to a
rapidly expanding global network remains not only a pressing
challenge, but a profound opportunity and necessity. The utopian
notion of closing the “digital divide” represents a paradigm shift
that encourages the participation of all communities and cultures to
express themselves through contemporary methods and continue a
progressive existence in today’s technology dependent society.
The two-day symposium features six sessions in one track, so
participants can attend all of the programs. Sessions include:
* Keynote Speaker: Pablo Helguera
* Exploring Language and Communication through New Media
* Indigenous Pop: Music and the Digital Presence of Sisa Toaquiza,
Flor de los Andes
* Territory of the Imagination: Reimagining the Borders of Art and Space
* STEM + Arts Education Forum

About Digital Latin America
Exhibition * Symposium * Block Party
Digital Latin America is an outgrowth of the Latin American Forum for
the award-winning International Symposium on Electronic Arts
(ISEA2012) produced by 516 ARTS in 2012 (www.isea2012.org). It
explores the North/South axis of cultural development and exchange
between South America, Central America and the Southwest United
States. Presenting partners are the UNM Art Museum, the Albuquerque
Museum of Art & History and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The
project looks at the way in which artists negotiate the complex
terrain between global and local, virtual and real, and political and
private, in the creation of work that proposes alternative
understandings of technology, art and cultural exchange.
