Now Available: Leonardo 42:1
Lanfranco Aceti shows art's power to counter the official histories of war and allow the reconciliation of the irreconcilable; Dawn Whitehand's sculpture and installations draw on patterns from the cosmic to the subconscious; in performance, installations and film, Phillip Warnell considers the body as both place and subject, with the help of bioenergy, animal magnetism and a little X-ray vision; Ann Elias compares the strategies and anxieties of two early champions of concealment, in their U.S. and Australian environments. All this and more in the current issue of Leonardo. FIND OUT MORE
LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial
Renews Affiliate Membership
LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial was created in 2007 as an interdisciplinary space intended to foster artistic exchange and promote relations between society, art, science, technology and creative industries. It is, further, a center for research, training and artistic and technical production, as well as for the public exhibition of new forms of art and industrial creation. LABoral arose as a response to the need in Spain for a space dedicated to artistic experimentation. The group is also involved in the development of emerging activity by creators who make use of new tools offered by current Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Leonardo/ISAST welcomes LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial as a returning Affiliate Member.
