Event Description:

The ETSU Department of Art & Design and the Mary B. Martin School of the Arts present Outer Regions: A Roundtable Panel Discussion on March 1 and 2, 2013.

The Outer Regions is a two-day event that aims to locate the current benefits and ramifications of artists living outside the main art hubs. Art scholars and art professionals are invited to East Tennessee State University to share their thoughts on these topics.

Whether to live in or at distance from a main art hub has been an ongoing discourse among artists. This project revisits the debate, taking in consideration advances in technology (i.e. video conferencing, social networking, on-line sales, web visibility) and current perceptions of urban and non-urban living. Concluding a series of roundtable discussions, a panel of four art professionals from around the country will present their research and will dialogue over what it means to be an artist working at a distance from New York, LA, Berlin, or London.

Emma Balazs, Director of Visual Arts, Columbia University
Sarrita Hunn, co-founder and managing editor of Temporary Art Review
Adelheid Mers, Associate Professor, Arts Administration and Policy, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Joey Orr, Arts & Sciences Fellow, Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts, Emory University

The roundtable topics will be held at the Meeting Room 3, D.P. Culp Center on March 1 and 2 with focus on the following subjects: WWW, Local production, Altered Institutions and Radical Habitats. The public panel discussion will be held on March 2 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ball Hall Auditorium and will be moderated by faculty Mira Gerard.
