Is a magical and triumphant return. We were on a post-EXPO vacation and we don’t mind admitting that we feel little sheepish about it.

This is an epic return to form. First we repatriate Brian Andrews as he returns to work in the mother ship and for DePaul University.

Then we are joyously joined by our sponsor for the month, SAIC‘s low residency MFA program! For those of you already establishing your practices and looking to take the next step this program is for you.

Then Irene Hofmann rewrites the script at Site Santa Fe to buck the proliferation biennial trend and provide a fertile ground for those of us participating in the Pan American experience.

Then roughly 46 minutes in Ben Davis and Duncan start to solve arts journalism and end up solving art!!! They are two the best conversations we’ve had at EXPO and you’ll enjoy them. Occupy this show!

next to Pratt Manhattan Gallery
144 West 14th Street, 2nd Floor

“Pratt Manhattan Gallery will present ‘Broadcast Yourself,’ a free public symposium in conjunction with the gallery’s ‘Broadcast’ exhibition…Speakers will include NPR ‘On The Media’ host Brooke Gladstone, ‘Broadcast’ curator Irene Hofmann, and ‘Broadcast’ participating artists Gregory Green, Angel Nevarez and Valarie Tevere of neuroTransmitter, and Siebren Versteeg.

‘Broadcast Yourself’ will address the issues of power and control extended by traditional media outlets in contrast with the do-it-yourself attitude pervasive in the tech-savvy younger generation. Symposium panelists will also speak to the impact that radio and television can have in shaping the events of our time; how artists can directly engage, challenge, or subvert the structure and authority of broadcast media; and how our culture is shaped by the actions of individuals and artists.”
