Mapping New Urban Landscapes

In Summer 2015, Xiaowei Wang spent four weeks in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia! After a week of facilitated workshops teaching how simple digital and new media art interventions can transform urban space, the participants proposed public art projects to address impacts of rapid urbanization. Four teams developed public and social art installations, which culminated in several public events to exhibit their work. 976 Gallery hosted the program.
