Miami New Media Festival 2015 to Present 27 Projects From Around the World

 

Miami, Oct 8th, 2015. - Twenty seven national and international artists will be presented in the Miami New Media Festival (MNMF) scheduled for October 2015 at The Chill Concept.

The Miami New Media Festival is a multimedia public art project held in Wynwood, Miami, every October since 2006. It promotes video, interactive 3D, live webcast, mapping, audiovisual live performance, workshops and lectures, among Miami and its public spaces. In some editions, it has also streamed some artwork simultaneously in other Latin American cities. This festival enables a new possibility of public art reaching audience integrating videos into urban life.

The artists were selected from 85 applicants from around the world. Nina Fuentes, creator of The Chill Concept; Gerardo Zavarce, curator; Mauisa Parada, director of the Arts Connection Foundation; Adriana Barrios, videoartist; and Muu Blanco, multimedia artist; were part of the committee who made the final selections. Curators of the exhibition are Carlos Cuellar Brown, Gerardo Zavarce and Nina Fuentes.

These proposals engage audience through artistic innovation in video, internet and public art. “We are really excited about this selection. This is the first time we open our call to artists from around the world and we had a great feedback”, says Nina Fuentes, creator of the MNMF nine years ago. “Our curators committee thinks these artists are going to have a great impact on multimedia visual arts” said Mauisa Parada, director of the Arts Connection Foundation, sponsor of the festival.

Financial support for this event comes from Arts Connection Foundation.
