Featuring work by exhibition artists from the visual, film/video, new media, and performing arts, the Web site also includes related texts, essays, and conversations between Walker programmers and members of the global advisory committee that helped shape the exhibtiion How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age.
How is art from other latitudes being made and displayed? How does it travel and translate from the locales where it is conceived to the global arena? Are new meanings being produced and original assumptions lost over the journey? The exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age examines ways that globalization, or the "new internationalism in art," is affecting visual culture. Twenty-eight artists, both emerging or mid-career (many making their American debut), from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Africa, Turkey, and the United States are represented. Their work is determinedly individualized, yet provocatively informed by its cultural context. Their practices transcend national boundaries without surrendering their specificity.
