LA LOTERIA INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBIT September 10 - October 22, 2011 Opening Reception: Saturday, September 10, 2011 / 6-10 pm Observatory: 543 Union Street (at Nevins), Brooklyn, NY 11215 Borderline Projects is pleased to announce the opening of La Loteria Art Exhibit. This show will feature the work of 29 artists from 11 countries, who drew inspiration from the symbolism, style, characters, themes and other aspects of La Loteria Mexicana to create their pieces. About the Show The idea behind this exhibition was to use the images of La Loteria Mexicana as a matrix that helped generate dialogues, intersections, and points of encounter. We have invited artists from all origins and disciplines to adapt, pay homage, adopt or desecrate La Loteria. This exhibition seeks to open a liminal space, a border-zone where it can be possible to explore our differences together. La Loteria Aumentada App We are happy to announce the release of the "La Loteria Aumentada" App during the opening reception of La Loteria Art Exhibit. "La Loteria Aumentada" is an augmented reality public art project by John Craig Freeman, a public artist with over twenty years of experience using emergent technologies to produce large-scale public work at sites where the forces of globalization are impacting the lives of individuals in local communities. Built for smart phone mobile devices, this project will allow visitors to Observatory to see an entire deck of La Loteria cards floating and spinning in space throughout the gallery and spilling out into the surrounding neighborhood. The public will be able to simply download and launch the project and aim their device?s cameras at the surrounding area. The application uses geolocation software to superimpose the cards at precise GPS coordinates, enabling the public to see them integrated into the physical location as if they existed in the real world.

The different projects and events that it promotes revolve around the notion of liminality, and are dedicated to explore interdisciplinary encounters, as well as imaginative investigations. Borderline Projects is interested in the limits of experience: the limits between art and science, imagination and technique, the intimate and the collective. More info
