January is coming to a close! How is this possible? In any case, this is long overdue, but I figured I would look back at 2013 to re-invigorate and remind myself of what is possible in 2014!
February – Hosted a Wednesday Forum at the California College of the Arts with forum for the Visual and Critical Studies department with brilliant scholar Mabel O. Wilson
March – Had the pleasure of presenting on a panel at the Theorizing the Web 2013 conference and my recap of the event was published to Creative Applications Network and wrote features for artist and designer Kristin Neidlinger and Scott Kildall for Ideas Issue for Asterisk SF Magazine
April – Had the opportunity to get a review for Will Rogan’s exhibition Blanking Out at the Altman Siegal Gallery published to Daily Serving / Attended A Simple Collective Salon on New Media Arts in the Bay Area. This space is absolutely worth checking out. For a (physically) small space, founder and director Rhiannon MacFadyen has A LOT of big ideas and events happening in 2014.
July – Jennifer Locke performance ~ Yes, that is me in Appointment 5
August – Helped organized and co-facilitated a class on fourth wave feminism and digital activism at the AF3IRM Summer School of Women’s Activism / ZERO1 Summer programming for 2013 included co-presenting with Ben Valentine on the topic of new media and internet art and the role of the writer
September – Such a treat to see biological anthropologist present at the Being Human Conference 2013 on one of my favorite topics…love!
October – AF3IRM Congress and annual conference on transnational feminism in New York. I must say, it was a beautiful sight to see almost every face at the annual conference belonged to a womyn of color. Phenomenal.
November – I had the pleasure of co-presenting on panel with The Civic Beat (Ben Valentine and An Xiao Mina) at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts – Dissident Future Arts and Ideas Festival / Saw Janelle Monae at the Warfield with my high school best friend ~ Such a great night! / Berkeley South Asian Radical Activist History Walk with the AF3IRM SF Bay Area Chapter members
AND had a pretty sweet year in grad school. NOW, I’m getting ready to finish off my last semester!
