(A) MEXICAN r4WB1t5 macro.Fest!
THURSDAY 2006.04.06 - SUNDAY 2006.04.09

12 artists and curators from Mexico City, Mexico (physically) travel to Chicago to participate in the upcoming (A) r4wb1t5 macro.Fest of digital arts, New Media projects and realtime audio video performances!

Chicago’s fourth instance of the decentralized and distributed (A) r4wb1t5 macro.Fest consists of a string of New Media art events occurring each day from April 5th through April 9th. Various alternative art spaces in Chicago will function as hosts for these individually curated and connected r4wb1t5 micro.Fests. Each micro.Fest is organized by individual curators based in Mexico City and facilitated in Chicago by Amanda Gutierrez, jon.satrom and jonCates. This r4wb1t5 macro.Fest is a macro-expansion/explosion of previous smaller r4wb1t5 micro.Fest activities.

This r4wb1t5 macro.Fest initiates a cultural exchange wherein Chicago-based curators, organizers and artists will soon travel to Mexico City to develop a sister r4wb1t5 festival. Artists, curators, organizers, facilitators and participants gather for these free and open events comprised of live audio and video, media art screenings, installations, and network based art in the discursive context of r4WB1t5. Join the conversational hyperthreads of these dynamic exchanges between Chicago and Mexico City!
