Welcome to July. We are getting started just a bit later in July because
of travels and the US holiday. We hope all is well with you. We are
thrilled to introduce Ileana Selejan (RO/US) and Calin Man (RO) who will
be moderating our July topic: Intersubjectivity: New Media, Aesthetics,
Networks, and Upended Cartographies. We are really looking forward to
their provocative title which revolves around an exhibition they are
co-curating on sleep. They will formally introduce their topic, post their
own biographies and those of their upcoming monthly guests.
We met Ileana this past year on a jaunt that Tim Murray and I made to
Wellesley College¹s Davis Museum of Art.
For those of you that don¹t know Wellesley, one of the original seven all
women¹s colleges in the US, is situated a short distance from Boston,
Mass. The college¹s Davis Museum holds an evolving collection that we
Tim curated Calin¹s work in one of the first CD Rom Exhibitions, Contact
Zones: The Art of the CD Rom.
We have followed Calin's work for quite some time and welcome him as
moderator with Ileana and the line up of guests they have organized for
us. We are hoping you will all follow closely and respond to posts
throughout the next few weeks.
Just a note that at the end of July we will be shutting down for the month
of August to relax and re-group but will see you all again in September.
