This past October, TransCultural Exchange was featured at the Fulbright Association’s 31st Annual Conference “The Interconnected World” in Beijing, China. TransCultural Exchange’s Director Mary Sherman presented the projects that the organization has produced around the world, in particular The Tile Project, Destination: The World, “will be completed by the end of 2008, for which over 100 artists, from over 40 countries, donated tiles to 22 world sites to create 22 site specific, permanent art works,” said Sherman. “Their multicultural structures now dot the landscape from Berlin to Boston, Manila to Mumbai, Toronto to Taipei and 16 other sites in between.”
The TransCultural Exchange mission is to bridge cultural, geographic, political and linguistic divides by bringing people together through the arts in order to foster a greater understanding of world cultures, while at the same time, seeking to further artistic innovation by creating large-scale, cross-discipline, global art projects and programming. For two decades TransCultural Exchange has been working directly with artists, arts organizations, foundations, museums and cultural centers in more than 60 countries and has staged award winning, critically acclaimed projects.
