Group Description

Upgrade! is an international, emerging network of autonomous nodes united by art, technology, and a commitment to bridging cultural divides. Its decentralized, non-hierarchical structure ensures that Upgrade! (i) operates according to local interests and their available resources; and (ii) reflects current creative engagement with cutting edge technologies. While individual nodes present new media projects, engage in informal critique, and foster dialogue and collaboration between individual artists, Upgrade! International functions as an online, global network that gathers annually in different cities to meet one another, showcase local art, and work on the agenda for the following year.

At this moment (02/08/06) there are 20 nodes around the world! Amsterdam, Belgrade, Boston, Caracas, Chicago, Istanbul, Johannesburg, Lisbon, Montreal, Munich, Oklahoma City, New York, Seoul, Scotland, Salvador, Skopje, Sofia, Tel Aviv - Jerusalem, Vancouver, Wellington. We meet as an international network once per year. The first meeting was in New York in 2005, the 2006 meeting will take place in Oklahoma City.
