Summer of Arts 2012 is a virtual art event on the Metropolis-Grid and part of the celebrations for the 4-year anniversary. Showing all varieties of arts to the public: theater projects, audio-visual installations, photography, paintings, live performances and cyberart.
In addition to traditional forms of art representation new CrossOver Projects RL/VL are presented which are forming entirely new forms of art. The SoA-event complements the activities around the cross-grid-project IMAB Biennial, where the projects of Metropolis-residents should be particularly promoted.
The SoA-Expo on the Metropolis-grid will be performed on 4 regions, which are provided to the artists free of any charge. Official opening of the Expo is the August 04th, 2012. The exhibition will be accessible for the public till the end of October 2012; free of charge!
At the end of the event an exhibition catalog will be published, containing informations about the artists and the exhibited artworks. This catalog will be available online; free for everyone.
Depending on audience interest, the SoA-regions could also be made available after the official exhibition period as a permanent exhibition. A decision about this figure will be made during the exhibition period.
