About the Exhibition: Curator: Pamela Jennings, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Carnegie Mellon University Speculative Data and the Creative Imaginary: shared visions between art and technology will be on exhibit at the National Academy of Sciences Rotunda Gallery in Washington D.C. June 3 to August 24, 2007. The summer long exhibition has been organized as part of the ACM Creativity and Cognition Conference to be held in Washington from June 13 to 15, 2007 (http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/CC2007 /).
Works in the Speculative Data and the Creative Imaginary exhibition represent a confluence of research and creative practices that include the visual arts, design, architecture, performance, science, technology and engineering. The exhibited works focus on computer mediated experiences, technology development, aesthetic practices and cultural criticality. They complement the ACM Creativity and Cognition conference themes of cultivating creative minds, sustaining creative communities, and promoting creative engagement. These speculative creative digital media works illustrate methods in which new knowledge can be founded from hypothesis stemming from creative inquiry and practice. The works celebrate imaginary scenarios and real-time phenomenon from the outer space to cyberspace, collective space to urban space, public space to embodied space, and ecological space to dialogical space.

MACRO, Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma, presenta il nuovo progetto personale di Ghada Amer, a cura di Danilo Eccher.
La mostra si svolge nell’ambito della stagione 2007, che vedrà anche le esposizioni di Paolo Canevari e Atelier Van Lieshout. In concomitanza col progetto espositivo, dal 26 maggio al 30 settembre 2007, nelle Sale MACRO, sarà presentato un catalogo antologico edito da Electa.
Circa quaranta opere per la nuova mostra allestita da MACRO e dedicata a Ghada Amer (Il Cairo 1963).
Dipinti su tela e disegni su carta oltre a installazioni caratterizzate dal ricamo con fili colorati, cifra stilistica propria dell’artista, che da sempre utilizza l’ago e il filo come strumento d’arte.
Una selezione di opere che coprirà circa vent’anni di percorso artistico – dall’inizio degli anni Novanta a oggi - divisa in quattro grandi temi: dalle riflessioni intorno alla parola e alla scrittura a opere ispirate alla condizione femminile, dall’erotismo al disegno indagato attraverso diversi aspetti.
