Past week, I've been communicating with Eyebeam to host sfpc final event. Current progress is that we have positive feedback from programs director, and we need to answer some questions (below) to get executive confirmation.
The exhibition, or event, will be Nov 22~27. so it's not very long, because of Thanksgiving Holiday. Also we want to deinstall the show before some students will return home. We can't really ship art work, or deinstall for you. Please arrange your schedule accordingly, or coordinate with another student to plan deinstall. And since it's a short exhibit, we should be careful about putting too much energy in installation and try not to make anything too big that will be trash right after the show! (Its not only bad for the environment, but it costs alot to throw stuff out in NYC)
They have availability in Main Space and Workshop Space, but not in Bookstore and Common Area.
This is an outdated floorplan, the space in far left is now entrance (bookstore) and Lobby Entrance with 9'7'' door is now Workshop space.
if you haven't been there, it's a large space with high ceiling.
This is a link to Interactivos? exhibition Zach, Fredrich and I curated in 2008
Eyebeam suggests we use Workshop area (former Lobby) and part of Main Area. Set up might be similar to Prism Breakup exhibition. or it can be different. We will probably not use all the Main space, because it's huge. but close to half or 1/3 of space.
so..i'm happy to lead curating of the final exhibition, but if someone wants to curate, or collaborate, im even happier to share the duty.
A. curating: this entails, thinking about works, text, installation, PR, inviting writers, etc
B. design: print, branding, web, invite, exhibition design
C. tech: making tech list, working with eyebeam technicians,
D. Logistics: budget, cash control, opening, reception, cleaning.
5. Expected attendance and type of audience (i.e., coders, makers, hackers, business folks, artists, scientists, designers, etc)
6. List of collaborators, co-sponsors, funders
Casey GExhibiting Students: Andy Clymer, Claire Lin, Ishac Bertran, Jason Levine, Jessica Wolpert, Jonathan Dahan, Jonathan Wohl, Le Wei, Mini Kim, Moises Sanabria, Motoi Shimizu, Paul Cheng, Rachel Uwa, Simona De Rosa, Tega Brain
SFPC: Amit Pitaru, Zach Lieberman, Jen Lowe, Taeyoon Choi, Casey Gollan
Sponsors: We can list school sponsors and probably also get event sponsors for things as needed.
Casey GOn our mailing list, social media, to press contacts, relevant list-servs/blogs, friends and family. Possible to promote to Eyebeam's audience? (Bet we could think of some cool guerilla promotions for the show too?)
I noticed that because everybody is always here, the whiteboard calendar has become the most frequently updated and visible place to look for a current schedule. I think everybody in the school is an editor on the SFPC Google calendar, so it'd be great if everyone could take part in keeping the calendar up to the date with both classes (as they shift around) and also interesting events around NYC.
