SELECTED PROJECTS from the Call for Development Commissions and Exhibits

<< back to call for proposals >> << see pre-selected projects >>

We are very glad to announce that the following works and projects have been chosen by the Jury to be part of Robots and Avatars.

The Jury has selected a number of works to make up the 3 exhibitions in the Robots and Avatars project. Linked to the differences in each venue, both in space and technical terms, the Jury has decided to present an exhibition that will differ slightly for each venue.

A selection of works will present at FACT, Liverpool (UK) for showing from late March to the end of May 2012; a few to AltArt, Cluj-Napoca (Romania) for presentation in June/July 2012 and KIBLA (Slovenia – as part of Maribor 2012, European Capital of Culture) will take a number of works into their gallery in October 2012.

The following list is subject to final agreements with the artists. Updates will take place across the coming weeks. Nationality and country of production are listed alongside the names of artists and works.

We would like to say thank-you to all of the artists for an excellent set of applications and quality work across this process.
