Workshop on June 6th

leave a comment »

I attended the workshops for the most recent event at the MTS Gallery.

There were two workshops, one called – Claire Evans Workshop: The Work of Art in the Age of Digital Reproduction and another entitled – Steve Schroeder Workshop: Running a Record Label in an Uncertain Future. The workshops were held at the gallery on June 8th at 4pm and 6pm and cost $5 dollars each.

These workshops were put on as an extension of the Universe: 14 Billion Years performance art piece at MTS Gallery on June 6th from 8pm to 10pm.

The workshops were great. I got bang for my buck and came away with a greater knowledge of internet media art that is emerging right now and I also got an insight to the world of running an independent record label. They had visuals, started basically on-time, were interesting and they answered all of my questions.

After the workshop, I was lucky enough to have dinner with the presenters and they both were awesome. I hope they will revisit Alaska sometimes in the future.

Here are some links that were shared in both workshops.
