Project -LOGUE features many of the numerous languages and cultures that call Pittsburgh home. Bringing together local artists and writers from different neighborhoods across Pittsburgh, the exhibition, workshop series, and publication highlights the diversity of the city through music, art and writing.
The initiative attempts to use art as a universal language capable of facilitating communication across cultures and translation as a tool able to express meaning across languages. Through the combined use of artistic expression and translation, the initiative hopes to diminish social and linguistic barriers, and to promote cultural inclusion, curiosity, interaction, and exchange.
Project -LOGUE's first exhibit took place at Assemble Pittsburgh, as part of Penn Ave Art District's First Fridays March 2019 event.
The initiative was part of a year-long research on translation and arts, in collaboration with Abigail Salmon; and was supported by Carnegie Mellon's Dietrich Honors Fellowship Program, and The Charles C. Dawe Memorial Award.
