Today we are 30 years old and we wanted to celebrate with everyone with a great sample “por favor agregue y devuelva, Arte Postal en las colecciones y archivos del MIDECIANT-UCLM”. Unfortunately, due to the health crisis caused by Covid-19, we have had to suspend all the events that we had planned.
Today, May 7 at 2:30 p.m., the director of the museum Ana Navarrete and the founder José Ramón Alcalá participate in the VII International Symposium of Inovação em Mídias Interativas, 2020. That under the title of “VII SIIMI – humano não humano”, the University of Sao Paulo will organize in this edition, thanks to the Iberoamerican Observatory of Digital and Electronic Arts (OIADE). Making a presentation (online) in which they will talk about the experience of MIDECIANT and also about the 30 years of the celebration of the I Symposium on Electronic Arts that that same year of its inauguration of MIDE, was organized by CESCI-Pompeia in Sao Paulo, being the first Art and New Technologies event held in Brazil (and possibly throughout Latin America), and in which MIDECIANT participated by giving an Artistic Electrography Workshop.
In commemoration of our anniversary we had prepared four exhibitions that were inaugurated in the Sala Acua, in the Sala San Clemente, in the Antonio Pérez Foundation in Cuenca and in the Galileo Cultural Center in Madrid.
