PICA’s New Blood
The Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) announced its new Guest Artistic Director for the 2009 and 2010 Time-Based Art Festivals: Cathy Edwards who is Director of Programming for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven, CT and had been Artistic Director of Dance Theater Workshop (DTW) and Co-Director of Movement Research in New York. This is very good news for those of us who like adventurous, innovative movement/dance. C’est super, in fact.
For fun, check out Arts & Ideas’ DAISY which appears to use the same technology (almost said, “technogoly,” what’s that?) as our beloved Visual Thesaurus…a good thing for intuitive, weblike thinkers when your software thinks like you do.
