DESCRIPTION

In the fall of 2012, 516 ARTS and over 90 partners from around the region will present ISEA2012 Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness, a conference, exhibition and series of events exploring the discourse of global proportions on the subject of art, technology and nature. This initiative is part of the prestigious International Symposium on Electronic Art, the world's premier forum for advancing exchange and innovation among artists, scientists and technologists. As host for ISEA2012, Albuquerque joins Istanbul, Helsinki, Munich, Singapore, Sydney and other major cities worldwide as an international center for creativity and technology.

Over 100 artists and 350 presenters are coming from 29 countries to present and/or exhibit at ISEA2012. The symposium consists of the main conference based in Albuquerque (September 19 –24, 2012), a multi-site exhibition based at 516 ARTS and The Albuquerque Museum of Art & History (September 20, 2012 – January 6, 2013), and an expansive, regional collaboration throughout the fall of 2012, with art exhibitions, public programs and an in-depth youth education program focused on teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) through Art. ISEA2012 includes ground-breaking collaborations between artists and scholars with scientific and technological communities. It will draw a wealth of leading creative minds from around the globe, and engage our local community through innovative partnerships.

The ISEA2012 title "Machine Wilderness" references the New Mexico region as an area of rapid growth and technology within vast expanses of open land, and aims to present visions of a more humane interaction between technology and wilderness in which "machines" can take many forms to support life on Earth. Machine Wilderness focuses on creative solutions to the challenge of advancing technology while sustaining the global natural environment.
