TransCultural Exchange 2007 Conference: International Opportunities for Artists

I’m in Boston this week, and many are talking about a conference coming up late April but advance registration is due February 1. TransCultural Exchange’s 2007 Conference theme is “International Opportunities for Artists.” Learn how to break into the international art world. Join leading figures from around the world to hear about long- and short-term international residency opportunities for artists (working in every medium) as well as biennales and other global exhibition possibilities.

Conference panel venues include Northeastern University, Massachussetts College of Art and MIT.

I’ve never attended this event but the program sounds incredible: “Come meet, network with and have your work seen by the conference’s distinguished curators, critics and panelists. This is an excellent resource for professional development. Advance conference registration, which includes admission to all the panels, networking events and a private one-on-one consultation with one of the conference’s international guests, curators or critics is $150. All advance registrations must be received by February 1, 2007.”

Griffin Museum 13th Annual Juried Show Opens Submission Period 2/1/07

The Griffin Museum (Boston area) is soon to open its submission period for the 13th Annual Juried Show. Brian Clamp, director of Clampart Gallery in NYC will be the Juror. Exhibition dates are August 23 – October 28th, 2007. I’m pleased to see that one can submit prints (I’m not a fan of jurying exhibitions from disc; assessing craft is a crucial component to me). Click here for submission guidelines; closing date for receipt of applications is March 18. Brian Clamp’s gallery in Chelsea shows terrific work (most recently ROUGH BEAUTY by Dave Anderson), and he has a strong presence at the gallery expos (was just at Photo LA). Entering this show affords a great way to introduce your work to Brian Clamp, and support the activities at the Griffin Museum.
