ARS Electronica Awards Leonardo/ISAST with the Golden Nica for Visionary Pioneers of Media Art. 

The first issue of Leonardo appeared in 1968 in Paris. The publisher was Frank Malina. The artist and space travel pioneer strove to establish an international platform for artists whose work intensely focused on science and new technologies. After Frank Malina’s death in 1981, this vision was carried on by his son, Roger Malina, an astronomer at the University of California, Berkeley. In 1982, together with Frank Oppenheimer and Robert Maxwell, two founding members of Leonardo, he launched the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (Leonardo/ISAST). The new non-profit organization addressed the growing need on the part of members of the art, science and technology community to engage in networking in the form of conferences, symposia, festivals, lecture programs and competitions, to inspire one another, and to enter into new alliances. All the while, the Leonardo journal has reported on these activities and constantly presented current experiments, pilot projects and new joint ventures. This was the beginning of the Leonardo Network. Over the years, the Leonardo community has continually grown and engendered additional formats: Space and Arts workshops, the Leonardo Educators and Students Program, and the Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous. Ever since its inception, Leonardo has nurtured transnational and interdisciplinary collaborative projects in the USA and abroad, propagating and documenting the most creative and most promising ideas of our time. Leonardo accompanies and supports artists, scientists, researchers, theoreticians and practitioners who, in turn, have made their marks on the Leonardo Network, forming it and constantly modifying it further.

About Leonardo/ISAST
50 Years of Celebrating the Community

Almost half a century ago, kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina set out to solve the needs of a community of artists and scientists working across disciplines by using the “new media” of the time: offset print publishing. As a groundbreaking, innovative venture, Leonardo represented a unique vision: to serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. The result was Leonardo, an academic journal for artists with the peer-review rigor of a scientific journal. For 50 years, Leonardo has been the definitive publication for artist-academics, and the field has gained momentum in recent years.

Leonardo's anniversary celebrations are made possible by our international partners and led by the 50th Anniversary Committee Chair Nina Czegledy.
