International Art Conference: TransCultural Exchange 2007

On Marketing Photos with Mary Virgina Swanson, cool events, both national and international, are always being posted and brought to our attention. A lot of these would have flown under our radar if not for Swannie's diligence. TransCultural Exchange 2007, to be held at Northeastern University (NEU) in Boston, MA, is the latest. Scheduled for the weekend of April 27-29, 2007, the deadline for applications is already fast approaching.

From Marketing Photos:

TransCultural Exchange’s 2007 Conference theme is “International Opportunities for Artists.” Learn how to break into the international art world. Join leading figures from around the world to hear about long and short-term international residency opportunities for artists (working in every medium) as well as bienniels and other global exhibition possibilities.

Conference panel venues include Northeastern University, Massachussetts College of Art and MIT.

From the TransCultural Exchange 2007 website:

This is an opportunity to meet, network with and have your work seen by the conference‘s distinguished curators, critics and panelists. This is an excellent resource for professional development. Advance conference registration, which includes admission to all the panels, networking events and a private one-on-one consultation with one of the conference‘s international guests, curators or critics is $150. All advance registrations must be received by February 1, 2007.

Working in the fine art photography field, it's sometimes easy to get distracted by "tunnel vision" and forget that it's just another kingdom in the world of visual art; loads of technology, constant change in the industry, and the amount of individual workflow not withstanding. It seems that the powers of communication offered by the internet have hardly been tapped: we at CameraArts try to stay abreast of all the international festivals, both annual and bienniel, conferences, and seminars that take place year to year. Certainly they are always multiplying, with the successful events creating new iterations and endless possibilities for every niche in this staggering field.
