“Audio Description as a Generative Process in Art Practice,”
written by Professor Darrin Martin, has been included
in Performance Matters, Vol. 6 No. 1 (2020).
This issue, entitled Copresence
with the Camera, is edited by Lynette Hunter, Alex
Lichtenfels, Heather Nolan, and John
Zibell. Martin’s essay bridges the practice of audio
description in my own work to other historical and contemporary
examples of video art.
Professor Darrin Martin is participating in the group exhibition
Democracy,” a political and mystical virtual
exhibition curated by Monet Clark and hosted
by Pro Arts
Gallery in Oakland, CA, through Inauguration Day, on
January 20th, 2021.
First-year graduate Whitney Vangrin’s ‘Pittsburgh Hymn’ has been
selected for Jurors Choice in “RAW,” a national MFA
online exhibition sponsored by the MFA Art program at the
University of Montana. In addition to Whitney, graduates Genevra
Daley and Emily Gordon were also selected to participate. All
three competed with over 500 applicants from 89 different
Colleges and Universities.
Telematic Media Arts
has produced “The Archive to Come,” an exhibition (online and in
the gallery) of short time-based works that address questions of
loss, memorialization, crisis, and re-invention, through the lens
of contemporary networked culture and digital media. Professor
Darrin Martin, along with curators Clark Buckner and Carla Gannis
and numerous other artists, address fundamental questions
about what we value and want to preserve as we work to recover
from their ravages and build for the future.
