Links: Telematic Connections: The Virtual Embrace

(((I'll be in Atlanta this weekend. Will you? If so, watch me pontificate on an arts panel at the Woodruff Arts Center, Center Circle Room, 7pm Saturday. You might want to go see the exhibit as well! I have, and it's pretty good stuff.)))

"The Main Campus of the Woodruff Arts Center is easy

to find, located in Midtown Atlanta at 1280 Peachtree Street, N.E. The Memorial Arts Center building is located at the corner of 15th and Peachtree."

"Telematic Connections: The Virtual Embrace is a

traveling exhibition organized and circulated by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, and curated by Steve Dietz. The exhibition, Web site and the accompanying CD-ROM are made possible, in part, by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation."

"Telematic Connections, like many of the works in it,

is a hybrid affair. Part history, part speculation, partly onsite, partly online, it crosses boundaries between art, communications, and popular culture. (((Sounds pretty familiar to those who've been enduring Viridian stuff for 3 years.))) Its four sections include installation works, past and recent film clips, online projects, and a 'telematics timeline.'

(((Unfamiliar with ""? Then check out this extensive bibliography of the usual suspects.)))
