Last month the project team organizing the exhibition The Latin(o) American Digital Art project held a Twitter Gallery retrospective comprising the best images of the exhibition. There was a great response on Twitter, and the event even made the first page of the University of Liverpool news.
Now, in April, the project team is launching a second, exciting Twitter Gallery.
Throughout month of April the project will be tweeting one image per day of This Too Shall Pass, the new residence artwork created by the Artist in Residence, Brian Mackern, when he was here in Liverpool in October last year.
These exclusive images, shared for the first time, will give a rare glimpse into an artwork as it evolves and give you the chance to feed into the artwork yourself. All the images will be tweeted from the @latamcyber account, so make sure to follow it to see these great images.
Using re-tweets, favourites, and the hashtag #citiesindialogue, members of the public are encouraged to comment on and vote for their favourite image. Also, you’ll notice that the content of Brian’s artwork is the city of Liverpool itself, so if any of the venues are familiar to you, or if you have any of your own photos of the venues that you’d like to share, please tweet them with the #citiesindialogue hashtag.
There is a chance to win a signed poster by the artist as a prize, as well as a first edition copy of the entire artwork on CD. The lucky winner's tweet will be selected from all those who participate – so get your twitter accounts at the ready!
Throughout the month, there will also be tweets from Brian Mackern himself explaining the concept behind the artwork, and towards the end of the month there will be a live Q&A Twitter chat with the artist on Wednesday 22 April from 12.00-2.00pm.
The project team will be drawing everything together in Storify, so if you miss any of the tweets as they happen, you can catch up on everything here.

The Cities in Dialogue exhibition is part of the Latin(o) American Digital Art project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
