LEA Gallery Special: Global Crossings (GX)

Guest Curators: Dennis Summers and Choy Kok Kee

(gxgallery@astn.net)

 

The Leonardo Electronic Almanac Gallery

(http://mitpress2.mit.edu/e-journals/LEA/LEA2004/gallery.htm)

is inviting submissions in conjunction with the Leonardo Global Crossings Initiative.

The Gallery is looking to make visible the work of international artists, professionals and scholars who live and work in a wide varietyof situations where access to established venues for exhibition, display and publication islimited. Difficulty of access may be attributed to cultural, geographic, ethnic, institutional or disciplinary diversity, or issues related to the North/South divide, age, gender, etc. Throughthis Gallery we seek to showcase little-known work in the art-science-technology field and to counter the natural tendency of networks to be inward looking, thus reinforcing established points of view.

We are looking for work that considers the global earth in some fashion or another. It can be workthat addresses global social, political economic, spiritual, etc. issues. It can be work thatphysically or metaphorically lies in multiple locations on the planet, it can be work that may have personal relationships to multiple locations on the planet. Or anything else that loosely falls along the concept of being "global" in nature.

LEA encourages international artists/academics/researchers/students to submit theirproposals for consideration. We particularly encourage young authors outside North America and Europe to send proposals.

GX is committed to identifying and showcasing the work of international artists, professionals, and scholars from outside North America and Europe. Leonardo/ISAST has initiated this policy to reach out to diverse cultural and globalcommunities to overcome the considerable natural barriers that prevent trans-cultural collaboration in the emerging art-science-technology field.
