I am giving a talk on the 27th of September at Chelsea College. The talk is titled Experimenting, Curating and Commissioning: LEA, a Case for Art Experimentation in The Age of Social Media.
A presentation by Lanfanco Aceti, followed by a conversation with Prof. David Garcia.
Abstract: The current technological developments are re-designing the socio-political landscape within a complex economic context, obliging the art institutions and artists to re-thing old methodologies and find new approaches.
The Leonardo Electronic Almanac, under the directorship of Lanfranco Aceti, is responding to these technological challenges with re-newed commitment by creating a series of international synergies that allow multiple project collaborations.
Kasa Gallery in Istanbul, Goldsmiths College, Chelsea College, the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, Monash University and FACT are some of the institutions that by collaborating are developing new curatorial approaches, art commissions and publications to pursue an integrated and visible approach in the development and testing of creative ideas.
The Leonardo Digital Media Platform founded and directed by Lanfranco Aceti sees the participation and support as senior curators of Christiane Paul and Vince Dziekan.
