"The Heretics" at the ICA
Closer to home, the Institute of
Contemporary Art presents the Boston premiere of "The Heretics," an
experimental documentary film that charts the history of a 1970's New York feminist
art collective from the inside.
Directed by world-renowned video artist Joan
Braderman, the film chronicles the twenty-year span of the feminist art
magazine "Heresies," a magazine that spawned groundbreaking photography,
poetry, art and ideas.
Filmed at locations around the world, "The Heretics"
features interviews and artwork of the artists who grew "Heresies" into a
feminist forum for revolution. Among the luminaries who got their starts in the
magazine are Alice Walker, Adrienne Rich, and Barbara Kruger.
Screenings take place Thursday, February 11 at 7
p.m. (followed by a Q & A with Joan Braderman) and Sunday, February 14 at
3:30 p.m. Tickets are just $10, or $8
for seniors, students, and ICA members. For
more information about "The Heretics," visit www.heresiesfilmproject.org. For more info about the screenings, or to
purchase tickets, visit www.icaboston.org or call 617.478.3103.
Something Like Fireworks
In his first solo exhibition in New England, sound artist
and electronic musician Stephen
Vitiello creates "Something Like Fireworks," a new installation at the Davis Museum in Wellesley. The
installation, done in collaboration with lighting designer Jeremy Choate, features Vitiello's field
recordings from the Australian outback, the Canadian wilderness, a Virginia
marsh, and New York City's streets. In this installation, sound inspires
color, creating an experience akin to synaesthesia, in which stimulation of one
sense causes the linked experience of another. This experience is described by neurologist Richard Cytowic as
"something like fireworks." The Los
Angeles Times has called Vitiello's work "stunning" and
The installation is on view from February 24 through June 6
at the Davis Museum on the campus of Wellesley College. There's an opening reception on February 24
from 6-8pm, with an artist talk at 7pm. Stop by and meet the artist - and
you'll have a chance to welcome the Davis Museum's new director Lisa Fischman too.
For more information on the exhibition, visit www.davismuseum.wellesley.edu or call 781.283.2051. For more information on the
artist, visit www.stephenvitiello.com.
It's time to join ATNE!
Looking for ways to connect with other like-minded cyber-folk? Art Technology New England (ATNE) is a new initiative that connects four distinct groups in the art/techology sector: multimedia
and digital artists; academic
institutions that train digital artists; nonprofit
organizations who support the digital arts; and businesses that either generate new creative technologies
or use those technologies to create digital arts and entertainment.
ATNE provides a variety of services, including resource sharing, a forum for interaction and networking,
opportunities for learning and collaboration, workforce development and human
resource assistance, and avenues for advocacy and community building. Among the
specific programs will be a job board, internship placement program, a digital art lending program, artist residencies at high-tech companies, and professional development workshops. And social events too!
Individual membership is just $60 per year, or $45 for students; organization memberships are also available. To find out more about ATNE and to sign up for membership, go to www.atne.org.

development projects across the state.
