Constructing cultural and artistic dialogues across borders is what moves 150 speakers from all over the world to meet at the TransCultural Exchange Conference 2016, Boston University, 25-27 February 2016.
Transnational Dialogues will be there with its coordinator, Luigi Galimberti, who is joining the round-table “Bashed on the Head: Global and Local Tensions in the Life of an Artist”.
There will be panels and presentations also at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University, Emerson College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design and other locations.
“One of the best things in the art world today” – David Medalla, Artist and Founding Director of the London Biennale
Started in 2011, Transnational Dialogues is an open and on-going cross-media platform managing and imagining artistic and cultural projects with a focus on the new geographies of globalisation and the emergence of a multi-polar artistic and intellectual world.
Transnational Dialogues facilitates artists, creatives, professionals, intellectuals and writers from Europe, China and Brazil to come together for a series of exchanges in both physical form and online. The platform promotes sharing of information, networking, and conceptual collaboration between individuals, organisations and institutions working in a variety of disciplines transnationally, and offers a trampoline for future collaborations and initiatives.
“Traditionally, artists relied solely on galleries and dealers to support their art. They worked largely within the confines of their discipline and studio walls. Today numerous other options for artists also exist: More and more artists are managing their own careers, working in new formats and collaborating with people in different disciplines, both here and abroad.”
The full schedule for the events by day are available on their website.
