VANCOUVER, British Columbia --(Business Wire)--
The SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery will gather and present 14 outstanding,
critical, and innovative unique works and projects, incorporating its
theme, "Acting in Translation." While the essential aim of the Art

art, science, technology, research, and societal developments, "Acting
in Translation" concentrates on strong content and criticality in these
works and projects, conveyed through the use of advanced technologies.
Curated by Basak Senova, "Acting in Translation" aims to revolve around
the readings, responses, and perceptions of 'the act of translation' as
a productive tool based on criticality. The participating artists are
Paul L. Stout, Rachele Riley, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Joseph Farbrook,
Yoichi Ochiai, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Inmi Lee, Kyle McDonald, Zohar

artists along with an afternoon networking reception.
"The 2014 Art Gallery represents no single or homogenous approach, but a
diverse display of artistic strategies," said Basak Senova, SIGGRAPH
2014 Art Gallery Chair. "Translation, as a term and as a tool, generates
numerous potential fields for art production, which is why we selected
it as this year's theme and are thrilled to have these outstanding works
