Pulse Miami, Fred Torres Collaborations, December 1-December 4.
We recently finished installing, For the Record: Andy Warhol's Polaroids and Snapshots, 1974-1986 the exhibition I curated for the Fine Arts Gallery at Mott Community College in Flint, MI. Selected from the 162 images donated by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, the exhibition explores Warhol’s routine practice of surveillance and the extensive visual record he produced. It also promises to shed light on our own diaristic and voyeuristic impulses for creating a collective diary that exists in a virtual state of interconnected electronic memories on Facebook, Twitter, and countless blogs. Special thanks to Brian Liljeblad for his generous assistance, and to all the good folks at Mott for the invitation to work with such a compelling collection of images. I also am grateful to artist, Anton Perich, for the generous loan of his portrait of Warhol for the invitation. Image Credit: Anton Perich, Andy Warhol with Polaroid Camera, 1972.

Pulse Los Angeles, Fred Torres Collaborations September 30 - October 3.
The University of Michigan's Slusser Gallery, Ann Arbor, MI. Nothing to Saycurated by Kathleen McShane. The exhibition is concerned with examining nothingness--quiet, less is more, what is there and not there, and nonsense. The title comes from John Cage who commented, “I have nothing to say, and I’m saying it” when referring to his 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence performance. The exhibition suggests that “nothing” can actually evoke “everything,” or at least an unexpected fullness (as in Cage’s silence). Lynne Avadenka, Jim Cogswell, Iris Eichenberg, Cynthia Greig, Paul Kotula, Michael Krueger, Melanie Manos, Stephen Prina, Jon Swindler and Cody VanderKaay. Through October 7.

I'm a couple years late getting around to reporting it, but several photographs from my New Eden installation are featured in Susan Shifrin's beautiful book Re-Framing the Representations of Women, published in 2008 by Ashgate Publishing in the UK.
The book's theme developed from a wonderful group exhibition Shifrin curated in 2004 for The Library Company in Philadelphia and the Rosenbach Museum and Library at Bryn Mawr College, Picturing Women: Historical Works and Contemporary Responses.
The book "makes a substantial methodological contribution to the analysis of gender discourse and visuality. It offers new and stimulating scholarship that confronts historical patterns of representation that have defined what women were and are seen to be, and presents new contexts for unveiling what art historian Linda Nochlin has called the 'mixed messages' of representations of women." Christina Penn-Goetsch of Cornell College writes a thoughtful review of the book in the SECAC Review, Vol. XLI, No. 5 2009.
