Boston-based nonprofit TransCultural Exchange is committed to promoting artists and arts organizations with international focus. Their 2011 conference runs from April 7-10, featuring a range of panels and events centering on international opportunities for artists.
FWP founding member James McLeod will be a moderator on a panel titled "The New Renaissance Man. Doing it for Yourself: From Specialization to Multi-Tasking." The discussion will offer a look into "how the traditional model of the artist in the studio, supported by gallery shows, is morphing into that of artists who are also curators, residency program directors, designers and/or their own PR agents. How do they do it? Is art suffering by artists - as well as writers - being pulled in so many directions? Or, are we witnessing a new type of Renaissance artist?" It will take place on April 9 at the Boston Omni Parker House Hotel from 11:00 am to 12:45 pm.
