"Extraordinary Bodies: Mutter Museum Photographs, Exhibit Opening. Curated by Laura Lindgren.
The historical bond between photographers and medicine carries forward to the present day with Extraordinary Bodies: Mutter Museum Photographs, an exhibition that presents more than a decade of work by sixteen contemporary fine-art photographers. Originally curated to coincide with the publication of Mutter Museum, this exhibition has traveled nationally since 2002 and now comes home for presentation for the first time in the Mutter Museum's own gallery.
The works in this exhibition find beauty not in conventional forms, but in the internal marvels revealed in the Museum's specimens and medical models. The artists have been drawn to explore the enigma of the body, whether normal or deformed, broken, or disfigured, to create visual metaphors for the human condition.
The exhibition includes photographs by Shelby Lee Adams, Max Aguilera-Hellweg, Gwen Akin & Allan Ludwig, Candace diCarlo, Dale Gunnoe, Steven Katzman, Mark Kessell, Scott Lindgren, Olivia Parker, Rosamond Purcell, Richard Ross, Ariel Ruiz i Altaba, Harvey Stein, Arne Svenson, William Wegman, and Joel-Peter Witkin, and a selection of historic photographs from the Museum's collection.
Support for this exhibit has been provided by The Groff Family Memorial Trust."
"Dawn DeDeaux is considered among America's pioneering artists in new media.
She is acknowledged in two current college text books, including Understanding Art, and Postmodern Currents: Art and Artists in the Age of Electronic Media. Her work is the indepth subject of the concluding chapter of Discipline and Photograph, a book by art theorist James Huginin of the Chicago Art Institute, and constitute a less appreciative chapter in the book Drama Trauma by Tim Murray or Cornell University. Her work has also been reviewed in numerous publications including New York Times, Art in America, USA Today and ArtForum. DeDeaux's work has also been the subject of televised features including CBS Sunday Morning and Canada Public Broadcasting's series The Future".

"New media" is an umbrella term for anything that's "out there," or in this case, describes a variety of media. The term's ambiguity is matched by more established titles such as "abstract art," or even more precariously, "mixed media."
European Sound Delta 2008
This investigation is designed to study the audio characteristics of the public space (ambient sounds, languages, music), from a sample of European cities, in order to compose a musical piece made of these multiple identities.
A gathering of European sound art practitioners, meant to prefigure an original network of cultural cooperation, conveys the project. Another purpose of the scheme is to make young people from underprivileged areas more aware of a possible mobility and to initiate them to the sound art techniques.
The artists will try and generate new creative processes through the integration of the latest information and communication technologies. As for the public space, it will be the focus of attention: the prime research ground for artists and a display site for their work.

Exhibitions & Events :
Katherine E. Nash Gallery : University of Minnesota
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is proud to present culturing nature : : culturing technology, seven women artists challenging the boundaries of nature and technology.
This exhibition opens February 26 and runs through March 27, 2008. A public reception has been scheduled for Friday, February 29 from 6-8:30 pm. All events at the Nash are free and open to the general public.
The Regis Center for Art is located at 405 21st Avenue South on the west bank campus of the University of Minnesota. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 am – 7:00 pm. Parking is available in the 21st Avenue Ramp.
The seven artists participating in the culturing nature :: culturing technology exhibition have in common their propensity for working among disciplines and across media to realize their ideas. Collectively these artists have collaborated with other biological life forms, engaged with machines as companion species, traveled near and afar from the continent of Antarctica to unseen local neighborhoods. All have invented their own processes or expanded the scope of contemporary art genres to realize their concepts, installations, photographs and interactive artworks. Each approaches the dynamics of culturing nature and culturing technology from a unique perspective.
Participating artist Amy Youngs will be presenting a public lecture on her work on Wednesday, March 12, at 7 pm in the IN-FLUX Space, Regis Center for Art.
The metaphor of culturing expands the space for dialogue about the cultural context of art and technology and introduces the concept of culturing in contrast to that of control. culturing nature :: culturing technology, in the Nash Gallery is presented in conjunction with the Wonder Women :: Art and Technology (wonderwomen.umn.edu) series of events March 12- 14, 2008.
