Answering the question, “Where have you been for the last two years?”
In early 2016, I was invited to go in-house at the Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT) at MIT to work on exhibitions, events, and programs that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding, in 1967-18, of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS). ACT is MIT’s academic art program and the successor to CAVS, where I had studied in the 1980s.
The job involved raising money, producing everything from an artist’s flight over the MIT campus to a tap dance performance, to an international symposium, all in collaboration with my co-curators Gediminas Urbonas and Lars Bang Larsen.
Here are some of the events, etc:
The Fall 2017 Lecture Series including Trevor Paglen, Postcommodity, and Judith Barry
An exhibit at the Dean’s Gallery including Jill Magid, Allora and Calzadilla, Pia Lindman, Haseeb Ahmed, Jae Rhim Lee, and others.
The Zooetics+ Symposium.
It was a thoroughly engaging couple of years.
