Q2 A-WAL Public Art Project:
Vers des lendemains qui chantent.

The A-WAL Public Art Project

The A-WAL Public Art Project is an experimental initiative that situates art in the vernacular through the commissioning of curators and artists for special projects in technovernacular and non-traditional environments. This project is at once central and extracurricular to A-WAL email, the email where cyber expression is commandeered through use of art and personal images as backgrounds. A-WAL has been featured as extension of exhibition at Satellite Project Shanghai Biennial, Observatori Contemporary (Valencia, Spain), Spring/Wooster graffiti project (New York), and will be present at the Venice Biennale in various unorthodox locales including a cave. A-WAL challenges traditional and technical modes of communications channels, redefines the relationship of public/private, and attacks the bourgeoisie notion and privileged role associated with collecting.
