Art of Sport will feature an international group of artists working in a diversity of conceptual aesthetic modes that address the social engagement with a culture of competitive sports in the United States and abroad. Covering a dynamic range of professional, amateur, and almost un-recognized 'as sport' activities, these photography, film, and interactive media artworks will demonstrate the hype, criticism, design, and process of sports competition, body and mind development, social construction and rehabilitation through sport, real-time communication feeds (radio, tv, web) of live events, community identity, and sports tourism in the United States and abroad.
