“Status Update,” curated by Debbie Hesse and Donna Ruff, at Haskins Laboratories in New Haven, April 29 through August 1, explores social networking technologies. My contribution to the show involves organizing a panel discussion via Facebook (look for an “Event Invitation”) that will take place on May 14th at 5pm. Stay tuned for more details.
UPDATE: Click here to find the FaceBook Event Invitation for “Big Love: Artists and Social Networking Technology.” “Big Love” is a conversation organized by Sharon Butler (that’s me) and featuring Matt Held (I�ll Have my Facebook Portrait Painted by Matt Held), Paddy Johnson (Art Fag City), Sharon Kleinman (author of Displacing Place), An Xiao (Thatwaszen), as well as all our other Facebook Friends and Twitter pals who are certain to stop by.
