seoul_mediacitySeoul’s international biennale of new media art will feature 12 new works and participants from across Asia. Taking three keyword themes – ghost, spy and grandmother – Mediacity Seoul 2014 (SeMA Biennale) takes place from 2 September to 23 November 2014.

It presents a large number of works by artists from East and Southeast Asia, as well as by artists from other parts of the world. Mediacity Seoul 2014 will feature twelve new works, the largest number of new works to be presented in the history of the biennale.

Three words – ghost, spy, and grandmother — will serve as the theme for the SeMA Biennale Mediacity Seoul 2014. Most of the works selected for Mediacity Seoul 2014 address themes of at least two of these three keywords.

The exhibition for the biennale will be held at two venues: the main building of the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) and the Korean Film Archive. At SeMA, the exhibition will feature works in media art, installation, film, photography, painting, and sculpture. At the Korean Film Archive, the exhibition will showcase thirty carefully selected works of film and video art; it will also feature a selection of installation works.

Mediacity Seoul 2014 invokes the word ghost to call upon those silenced spirits whose presence has been erased by dominant historical narratives; we want to hear them. We examine modern and contemporary history, with a focus on Asia, by calling these ghosts into our presence. Given that Asia is the birthplace of Buddhism, Confucianism, Shamanism, Taoism, and Hinduism, and that the influence of these religious and spiritual practices is still strong in the region, we also examine how contemporary artists in the region are reinventing these various traditional spiritual practices.

Spy is our keyword for alluding to the experience of colonialism and the Cold War in Asia. Given that nationalism is on the rise again in East Asia, particularly in the aftermath of the Great Tōhoku Earthquake of 2011, we seek an opportunity to rethink about the very notion of modernity and its brinkmanship course as represented by this potentially catastrophic radiation disaster. The immense amount of state violence experienced by East Asian and Southeast Asian countries in the 20th century brought about not only more wars but also intense mutual distrust and ideological witch-hunting; they still exert great influence in the region.

In our everyday vocabulary, grandmother is someone who is perhaps least associated with political power. In real life, grandmothers are living witnesses who have endured the ages of ghosts and spies.

Yokohama Triennale 2014, the fifth edition of the Yokohama Triennale, runs from August to November 2014 and welcomes the artist MORIMURA Yasumasa as its artistic director under the title: ‘ART Fahrenheit 2014: Sailing into the sea of oblivion.” It features 65 artists / groups with extensive international participation.

The title “ART Fahrenheit 451″ is derived from Fahrenheit 451, a 1953 science-fiction novel by Ray Bradbury. Based on the theme of book-burning, the story is set in a society where books are banned and centers on a group of men who have gone underground in resistance. They claim themselves as “being books” and devote themselves to memorizing entire books.

Yokohama Triennale 2014 plans to be a “voyage into the sea of oblivion.” It will make us recall things that have been inadvertently lost from our lives, things that have been perpetually forgotten by human beings, and particular things that have been lost in the contemporary age.

This is the fifth edition of the Yokohama Triennale, which was inaugurated in 2001. Under the Creative City policy, Yokohama is committed to promoting innovative urban growth, and the Yokohama Triennale has taken root as a leading project in this endeavour.

This year, the City of Yokohama has been designated as one of the Culture Cities of East Asia 2014 in a program jointly implemented by China, Korea, and Japan, and Yokohama Triennale 2014 has been designated as a Core Project in this program.

In addition to the main venues Yokohama Museum of Art and Shinko Pier Exhibition Hall, programs are being held at five Creative City Core Area Bases, and the entire city of Yokohama will become a forum for creative expression.

VSMM 2014 – 20th International Conference on Virtual Systems & Multimedia | Hong Konghttp://culture360.asef.org/event/vsmm-2014-20th-international-conference-on-virtual-systems-multimedia-hong-kong/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=vsmm-2014-20th-international-conference-on-virtual-systems-multimedia-hong-kong http://culture360.asef.org/event/vsmm-2014-20th-international-conference-on-virtual-systems-multimedia-hong-kong/#comments Mon, 18 Aug 2014 10:56:00 +0000 Judith Staines http://culture360.asef.org/?post_type=event&p=43389

The 20th International Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia (VSMM) will be held in Hong Kong 9-12 December. The Call for Participation (till 4 September) and Registration are now open. VSMM addresses museum professionals among others. The theme for the 2014 conference is ‘Image & Archive’.

VSMM is a premier world forum for the presentation of research on 3D acquisition, multimedia visualization, interaction technologies and their applications. Known for its multidisciplinary approach, VSMM has become a bridge between technology, art, history, science and engineering.

The deadline has now been extended for the Call for Participation for the 20th International Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia to be held at City University of Hong Kong, 9th to 12th December 2014.

Please submit your abstracts online before Thursday, 4th September 2014.

VSMM 2014, will be held at the Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre (CMC), City University of Hong Kong from 9th to 12th December 2014. The Conference will be co-hosted by the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong in partnership with the Centre for Creative Content and Digital Innovation, (CCCDI), University of Malaya.

Download the Call for Participation Flyer or visit the VSMM 2014 website for more details.

The theme for the 2014 conference is ‘Image & Archive’. Archives serve as basic tools for social accountability, the preservation and dissemination of historical memory, and the development of a richer understanding of cultural, social and political forces in an increasingly digital and networked world. Image & Archive focuses on technical aspects of the digital image and, on the numerous ways in which digital archives have become sources for innovation and dissemination.

Over the last decade technical advances including diverse areas in imaging technologies have allowed us to capture the world at increasingly high resolutions and contributed to vast reservoirs of data. New developments in social media and crowdsourcing have resulted in online archives of great diversity and application. Cultural collections are increasing becoming sources for new methods in knowledge-based visualisation and, advances in web protocols make this data increasingly discoverable. There are rapidly emerging demands for theses digital resources to be analysed and ‘designed’ while simultaneously they become sources material for creative and artistic applications.

Image & Archive addresses numerous topics including:

Archival Science – Artificial Intelligence – Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality – Critical Theory – Cultural Heritage – HCI – Imaging Science (including Robotics) – Information Science – New Museology – Philosophy – Photography – Remote Sensing – Semantic Web – Social Media – Teaching and Learning – Visual Analytics – Visualization

The aim of this conference is to discuss the concept that fresh research and public engagement initiatives should be integral to ultra-high resolution scanning projects, and to examine the notion that the archive must be further reconfigured for the purposes of successful digital consumption.

In choosing this theme, VSMM 2014 can best exhibit ground breaking work in relation to wide research and criticism in these fields.

The Conference Tracks for papers and presentations are:

Track 1 – Image Science
Track 2 – Information Visualization
Track 3 – Advances in Technology
Track 4 – Culture & Heritage
Track 5 – Creative Arts & Design

SALT is a unique opportunity to showcase cutting-edge art projects by world famous artists, framed by the breathtaking landscapes of the Artic. On an island in northern Norway, the SALT opening weekend (29 Aug – 1 Sept) includes a major site-specific film installation by Chinese artist Yang Fudong, visual and music performances.

On the island of Sandhornøy, Chinese artist Yang Fudong will create an exceptional new and site specific outdoor film installation for the beach. Welcome to the opening of Yang Fudong`s film installation The Light That I Feel Friday 29 August at 8 pm.

Yang Fudong, one of China’s best-known contemporary artists and filmmakers, is producing an outdoor, site-specific film installation for the beautiful and ever-changing landscape. His films are mostly black and white, plotless and fragmented, but at the same time hypnotic and epic in expression. “I think about how to tell a narrative by using not people speaking so much, but how the wind tells a narrative, or how trees tell a narrative”, he says.

Join the Arctic journey to experience SALT on Sandhornøya,  a mountainous island in the municipality of Gildeskål in the Norwegian county of Nordland, north of the Arctic Circle.
