Virtual Artist's Book inauguration at: ellibroysuslecturas.azul web page
On Saturday November 29, 2008, at six p.m. Spain time (at 18 hours gm (+1)). The exhibit ellibroysuslecturaazul is going to have an art show online.
This is a collaborative work experience promoted by the digital magazine www.librodeartista.info Artist Jim Lorena curates the exhibit. The authors were selected by a contest process on the Internet.
The selected works will be on display at Concha Pedrosa Gallery, Fernan Caballero Street, No. 11, Sevilla, Spain from January 21 to February 14, 2009. And also at the GB Visual Art Faculty in Sevilla, at Gonzalo de Bilbao Street, from February 19 to March 6, 2009.
On the galleries 84 artists across the globe are going to participate, includes pioneers on this art practice as well as individuals that just started. The techniques and materials are diverse
A virtual show is going to be displayed online but independently from the physical exhibit.
The exhibition online has the advantage that people all over the world will be able to interact with artists on facebook http://librodeartista.ning.com, twiter, flickr and youtube.
The contest will be open again on March 15, 2009 as "work in progress" from the digital version
I appreciate the work and cooperation of all the people who made possible this event.
