Please join us for Leonardo's 50th Anniversary celebration at ISEA 2017 (International Symposium on Electronic Art) in Manizales, Colombia. The theme of ISEA 2017 is "Bio Creation and Peace." Leonardo will co-host the opening celebration.
ISEA is one of the world’s most prominent international arts and technology events, bringing together scholarly, artistic, and scientific domains in an interdisciplinary discussion and showcase of creative productions applying new technologies in art, interactivity, and electronic and digital media.
This event was organized by University of Caldas, Department Visual Design Departament and XVI INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF IMAGE - ISEA2017.
The University of Caldas is one of the main public universities in the Colombian coffee region. Since its foundation in 1943, it has been a regional and national reference in training processes, quality research, artistic creation and projection of the environmental and cultural values of our environment
Since 1997, the University of Caldas has been holding the International Image Festival, a meeting that interrelates design, art, science and technology. For 2019 (10-14 June), the Festival will have as its central theme the Digital Humanism, that refers to the processes of human interaction with the technologies that enable new corporalities, different mechanisms of sensory perception, citizen participation in the dialogue, cultural and creative exchange, contemporary artistic co-creation, knowledge production open and visibility of creative communities.
Digital humanism favors the initiatives carried out in laboratories citizen collaborative construction and in the context of transdisciplinary practices. Also it makes special emphasis on the need to include critical thinking as a crosscutting needed to use the information in real time for analysis, understanding and assessment of representations of the world.
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.
