Title: ART WORLD BUZZ: The Digital Shift - Where To Find the Latest Art Info
Description: Art news and reviews meet the rise of online media through E-zines, blogs and listings. This conversation among some of the leading digital art journalists will cover how digital media sources are currently performing in terms of the markets, audience, and influencing the museum and gallery worlds. Is art news and the digital world clashing or complementing one another? How is this affecting or influencing individual art practices? Mr. Edelman has lectured at the Art Institute of Chicago, MOMA and the Frick Collection in New York. He has worked as a director for several art galleries in New York, including Sid Deutsch, BlumHelman, Shea & Beker, Annina Nosei and Anita Friedman Fine Arts. He has written on art for the Chicago New Art Examiner, Artnews, Art in America, Artpress in Paris, Artnet, Cover Mag and Tema Celeste. He has also curated exhibitions in New York, including "Getting From Here to There" at AFP Gallery in 2012 and "The Food Show: The Hungry Eye" at the Chelsea Museum.

Title: Material Reality: A different way for art to celebrate the human body
Description: In all of Heide Hatry's projects the material itself is the reality to which she wants to draw attention and through which she wishes to stimulate thought about who we are, what we have done, and what is at stake in our passage through the world. Expect a discussion to revolve around such themes with reference to how the material of which the work is made creates a space in which certain reflections are inevitable, in which the normally invisible becomes not only visible but insistent, how knowledge affects our understanding of beauty, and how the dynamic of appearance and reality, or semblance and truth, can be invoked in ostensibly simple images.
