The group exhibition titled “e-MobiLArt” is taking place during 20 May – 10 June in the context of the European project e-MobiLart (European Mobile Lab for interactive media Artists) scheduled activities. The project is sponsored by the E.U. and is coordinated by the University of Athens (Greece), Faculty of Communication and Media Studies, Laboratory of New Technologies in Education, Communication and Mass Media. The exhibition is organized by the State Museum of Contemporary Art and is taking place as a parallel event of the 2nd Thessaloniki Biennale.
The 11 exhibited interactive installation artworks are the result of collaboration amongst 33 participating artists, supported by a team of established theorists, artists and scientists, active in the intersecting fields of art, science and technology. These artworks involve the use of interactive media, ubiquitous computing, communication networks, mobile and locative media technologies.
The e-MobiLArt process and its artistic results, which are presented in the exhibition, are the subject of a two-day symposium that is organized on May 21st-22nd in the Seminars venue in Warehouse C, Thessaloniki port. During the symposium a short presentation of the project and its activities will take place and the artists’ groups will talk about their collaborative experience and will present their exhibited artworks. This will be followed by two panel discussions on the curatorial, the artistic and the organizational perspectives into the collaborative process. Invited lecturers in the symposium are Roger Malina (astrophysicist and executive editor of Leonardo, the most important journal on Art, Science and Technology published by MIT Press), Claudine Dussolier (director of the cultural organisation ZINC, Marseille), Ekmel Ertan (artistic director of the international festival AMBER, Instanbul) and the creative team NeMe (Cyprus).
