Non-Juried Exhibitions: (curatorial and designer):

Below are exhibitions that I had the lead role as curator and designer.
This involves developing the core idea for the exhibition, securing the grants needed to produce the exhibition, identifying the site and installing the exhibition, designing and producing the catalogue and distributing the catalogue nationally and internationally.
I included the reviews specific to the exhibition/catalogues in this section.

New Media / New Work” Exhibitions  during the College Art Association
conference in Boston, 2006, New York, 2007 and Dallas, 2008 I will be curating exhibitions that highlight and examine the work of new media artists.

New Media/New Work” was exhibited at Art Interactive Gallery in Boston, 2006. New   Media/New Work collected a cross-section of cutting-edge video and new media work that highlights diverse technical and thematic approaches to the medium including experimental abstractions and formal and narrative explorations. “New Sound Waves” will be an exhibition of sound pieces to be experienced during the College Art Association Conference in New York, 2007 “Projections in Exteriors” is an exhibition of videos created during the College Art Association Conference and projected via cell phones in Dallas, 2008 

I am a curator of the new media exhibitions for The New Media Caucus. The New Media Caucus is a non-profit, international membership organization formed to advance the conceptual and artistic use of digital media. The caucus represents artists whose media are expanding with developments in digital technology and artists working in newly emerging media such as robotics, virtual reality, interactive and installation environments as well as artists working in established digital areas of video, sound and graphics. By providing a forum for the critical review of new media practice, the caucus increases the visibility and presence of new media practitioners.

The Future of the Book of the Future was a hybrid artist installation/exhibition
work that was designed as a collaborative project between traditional artists, book artists,
poets, writers, historians, scientists and Internet activists on the impact of information
technology on text, book publishing and culture. The first exhibition was at the Florida
State Museum, then the University of Alaska, Anchorage and finally it was the inaugural
exhibition for the opening of a new building to house the Japanese Department of
Information Infrastructure in Tokyo, Japan. To maintain the idea of the exhibit as a
cultural collaboration, artists and others from each new venue had to generate work for
the exhibit. Only a few works from previous shows traveled. Events such as poetry
reading, technology demonstrations, seminars and panel discussions were all part of the
project. Many of the ideas and artifacts have been included on a website that captures
some of the original anticipation and energy of that formative period when the Internet
became public.

The The Future of the Book of the Future project was co-curated with Conrad Gleber, Director of Digital and Media Arts at La Salle University. My specific role was develop the core idea, secure the grant funding, edit all material and design the catalogue and other published material that was produced for the FSU Museum of Fine Arts exhibition and the University of Alaska exhibition.

*“Chicago: Although Marco Polo Never Heard of Chicago, its Story Really Begins With Him”, Franklin Furnace Gallery, New York City. This was an exhibition of art and artifacts that examined the “second city” identity of Chicago. The exhibition included a catalogue with a record and four evening performance events.

I co-curated this exhibition with Bob Peters, Professor at University of Chicago, Bob Roesler, a new media artist living in Los Angeles and Conrad Gleber, Director of Digital and Media Arts at La Salle University in Philadelphia. My specific role was the design of the exhibition catalogue that was a newspaper with an embedded record and other artifacts, and contributing the art piece that dealt with the social values of Chicago.

designX: critical reflections, An art exhibition and exhibition catalogue that focused on             the design process and the fundamental role of designers in our culture, The FSU Museum of Fine Arts, October, 2002
The exhibition included interactive media and computer-network interfaces by designers that use new dimensions of sound, motion, time and virtual space. Each designer was chosen to represent a specific perspective on design practice and contribute to the critical dialogue on the development of contemporary design.
I was the lead curator on the project. I developed the core idea, secured the funding through grants, selected the designers, designed, and edited the catalogue. The exhibition was local. Keith Roberson was the co-            curator for the exhibition.

*“SEE JANE RUN; SHORT SWEET GONE; TRANS MISS IONS”, There were two sites that had parallel exhibitions and were linked by broadcast transmissions: The FSU Museum of Fine Arts, Tallahassee and The Grolier Club in New York City had a one-night exhibition of art and theater pieces and readings that reflected communication and technology. It featured the Read It Once, a piece by William Gibson that was simultaneously being broadcast in New York, London, and Berlin. The book was read once and then a virus destroyed it while it was being broadcast.

 I co-produced this event with Kevin Begos, a New York publisher of limited edition artists’ books, and Jerry Stern, author and Professor at FSU. This involved selecting the artists, writers and poets, securing the necessary funding, exhibition space and broadcast technologies.

Review of the “SEE JANE RUN; SHORT SWEET GONE; TRANS MISS IONS” exhibition and performances:
Read It Once”, 1991, May, Esquire,  this review was unusual in that it was a review of the book when it no longer existed because a virus destroyed the book at the time of the broadcast.
