Log Number: MA-04-12-0007-12

516 ARTS will develop a major exhibition entitled ISEA2012 Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness in partnership with the University of New Mexico and the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History. The exhibit will be part of the 18th International Symposium on Electronic Art. It will promote and sponsor creative exploration and encourage new artistic forms that demonstrate innovative ways to incorporate the use of the latest advances in technology. The project includes an international conference; a large-scale, multisite main exhibition in Albuquerque; a STEM-focused education program through art for teachers and youth; and a season-long, regional collaboration involving 65 arts and environmental organizations that will present in-depth public programming. This project is the largest arts collaboration in New Mexico history and the first of its kind to develop extensive collaborations between artists and scientists.
