MFA Graduate Student Symposium: Site, Non-Site, Website

Join the next generation of artists at their studio site as they explore theory and practice in the age of the internet. Keynote presentation at 11 a.m.: "The Body as a Cyberfeminist Non-Web Site" by Yvette Granata, followed by demos, interactive workshops, and an opportunity to tour the Graduate studios.  
 
Yvette is a multi-media artist, writer, film designer, and sometimes curator. Her work explores the socio-politics of technology through feminist art practice, cyber feminism, and techno-philosophy. Her work takes the shape of various forms and intersects video, sound, performance, computational media, and theoretical installations. Her media artwork has been exhibited at the Harvard Carpenter Center for the Arts, The Eye Film Institute in Amsterdam, The Kunsthalle in Detroit, Papy Gyro Nights in Norway and Hong Kong, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center and Squeaky Wheel Media Arts Center in Buffalo. www.yvettegranata.com
