Laboral Art and Industrial Creation Centre OPEN INTERNATIONAL
INVITATION - EXHIBITION OF LABCYBERSPACES PROJECTS - CyBERSPACe as
universal meeting place
3000 euro per chosen project
Laboral Art and Industrial Creation Centre, a new creative space
located in Gijón, Principality of Asturias, Spain, is making an open
invitation for projects for its upcoming LABCYBERSPACES exhibition,
part of its inaugural programme.
The goal of the invitation is to foster an open reflection on the
connections between art, technology and industry, and to then
materialise this reflection in the LABCYBERSPACES exhibition
scheduled for spring 2007. The selection will feature 10 projects
effectively addressing the technological nature of the artwork in its
most open conception, with a special focus on all those engaging in
the notion of CYBERSPACE as a universal meeting point.
Given that the goal is to encourage a common and open reflection, we
have chosen the format of an open invitation to guarantee the widest
possible participation. The LABCYBERSPACES exhibition aims to be a
meeting point for the community.
All entries submitted by an artist or group, significantly involving
technology and the use of Internet will be accepted for
consideration. A total of 3000 euro will be paid as fees and
exhibition rights for each of ten the projects eventually chosen.
The inscription form will be available as from 1st December 2006 at
the following website:

ABOUT Laboral, Art and Industrial Creation Centre
Laboral, Art and Industrial Creation Centre, is a newly created art
centre located in Gijon, in the Principality of Asturias, Spain. The
centre will undertake, from an ongoing rigorous focus, the tasks of
production, research and dissemination of stable projects developed
around the many meeting points existing between creation, science and
technology, and which are the groundbase of the work and reflection
of a large number of artist, theorists and researchers. Asturias'
industrial tradition, taken together with the innovative creativity
developed here, have turned this Spanish region into a particularly
appropriate place for a centre dealing with the above-mentioned
goals. The very name of the centre reflects the explicit
determination to fulfil that goal through a direct connection of the
most innovative aspects of industry with, normally distant and
removed, locations of art creation.
This determination is at the origin of the project for the
rehabilitation of 13,500 square metres of the former Universidad
Laboral of Gijon, an initiative set in motion by the Government of
the Principality of Asturias and that is scheduled to be completed at
the end of 2006. The investment will provide the Laboral, Art and
Industrial Creation Centre with the perfect space to implement the
tasks of production, dissemination, training and professional
encounters at the intersection of art and technology.
With this open invitation Laboral Art and Industrial Creation Centre
kick starts its Projects Office. This office will be making regular
open invitations for specific projects, while remaining permanently
receptive to all kinds of proposals which will be evaluated for
possible production at the centre. The mission of the Projects Office
is to foster and support art production engaged with new technologies.
