The main exhibition for ISEA2012 was based at both The Albuquerque Museum of Art & History and 516 ARTS, with off-site projects at the Alvarado Urban Farm, Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum, New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Richard Levy Gallery. The exhibition featured work that combined art, science and technology, demonstrating the role art can play in re-envisioning the world. The over 100 artists were from 29 countries: Austria, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, the UK and the USA. The exhibition was juried and curated through an international call for proposals, which drew close to 1,500 submissions from artists and presenters around the globe.
