SIGGRAPH 2017 presents an art exhibition exclusively dedicated to works of contemporary Latin American artists and designers who are exploring the myriad intersections among art, design, and technology. For the first time, the SIGGRAPH Art Gallery crosses the US/México border and presents contemporary artistic responses from the South, which are proposing alternative understandings of technology, art, and cultural exchange. The Art Gallery looks at how artists, designers, and local makers and developers are using different tactics to create innovative, sophisticated, experimental, humorous, and rebellious work, and how they navigate the tensions and ambiguities between global and local, political and private, virtual and real, modern and traditional.
A special issue of Leonardo, The Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology includes visual documentation of the works exhibited in the SIGGRAPH 2017 Art Gallery.
Reception: Leonardo, Art Papers, and Art Gallery
