WAM June 18-19 Fogo Island Arts Corporation
Filmmaker Mary Lewis will be there. The director of the National Art Gallery of Canada, Marc Mayer, will be there. German artist Silke Otto-Knapp will be there. So will Siddharta Das, a designer from India.
They and other artists, thinkers, critics and laypeople will attend the Fogo Island Arts Corporation’s two-day international colloquium re-mode control - rethinking the idea of remote.
Jack Stanley is the Project Manager of the Fogo Island Arts Corporation and Sandra Cull is the community representative. I reached them by phone earlier this week. I asked Jack about the theme of the conference, how it developed and what it means.
