A recent announcement from Joanne Mattera:
Saturday, March 7, 2009, 5pm: Blogger panel at Platform Project Space in New York City with me (Joanne Mattera), Hrag Vartanian and the Fallon and Rosof Artblog duo, Roberta Fallon and Libby Rosof, Bill Gusky, blogmeister of Artblog Comments, and Brent Burket of Heart as Arena. I hope you'll all show up with comments and questions. We're still working out the panel parameters. The panel is scheduled for 90 minutes in the late afternoon, starting about around 5:00. (This will give everyone a chance to see the galleries or the Armory fair events earlier in the day.) The panel will follow the Thursday, March 5th, opening of Blogpix, a show at Platform curated by Vartanian, Rosoff, Fallon, and me that explores the theme of the Blogosphere, and by extension Cyberspace, and by further extension to the whole concept of ones and zeros. Olympia Lambert, the gallery administrator at Platform and its support venue, Denise Bibro Fine Art, is directing the whole thing. I'll have a whole Blogpix post on the curators and artists as we get closer to the date, but here's the 411: Hrag has selected Ben La Rocco; Roberta and Libby have selected Christopher Davison; and I have gotten glutinous in selecting four of my favorite painters: Steven Alexander, Sharon Butler, Reese Inman and Julie Karbenick. Olympia has set up a Twitter page, and I'll keep you posted here.
