Caesura Conversation: Stories in Reserve
February 9, Wednesday, 2-4pm, James Gallery

If tourism is the modern realization of a human urge to be elsewhere,
how does this urge mutate when the elsewhere becomes the right here,
or vice versa? Join artists Sarah Kanouse, Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga,
Ryan Griffis, Lize Mogel, and Sarah Ross for a presentation of
travelogues from throughout North America. Moving from a series of
interviews with dentists working along the Southern perimeter of the
US-Mexico border to a walking tour examining the history and impact of
two global mega-events (Expo 86 and the 2010 Winter Olympic Games) on
Vancouver’s False Creek, the five artists will lead the audience on
tours of three distinct social and ecosystems.

Netherlands Media Students to Take 11-Day Program at Hunter

Sixteen students from a top-ranked university in the Netherlands will hone their skills in media arts during an 11-day program at Hunter sponsored by the Department of Film and Media Studies. They will be led by a Hunter graduate who now teaches in the Netherlands.

The 16, who will be at Hunter from February 14-February 24, are from Hogeschool Utrecht—the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences. All are students of Brian Maston, who earned a Hunter bachelor’s in Film and is now a senior lecturer in Film and Media studies, and Dutch colleague/TV producer John Driedonks. This is the second year Maston has brought a group of Hogeschool students to Hunter.
