“Electrifying Literature: Affordances and Constraints” is the Electronic Literature Organization’s 2012 Media Art Show that takes place in conjunction with the ELO’s conference held in Morgantown, WV, from 20-23 June 2012. Curated by Dene Grigar & Sandy Baldwin, it is comprised of five venues across the city: The Monongalia Arts Center (MAC), the Arts Monongahela Gallery, WVU Downtown Library, Colson Hall, & the Hazel Ruby McQuain Amphitheater & features the art of 55 artists from nine countries; a retrospective of artists Alan Bigelow, J. R. Carpenter, M.D. Coverley, Judy Malloy, and Jason Nelson; a special commissioned geo-locative work by Jeff Knowlton; artist talks; and performances.
While I will unfortunately not be able to attend this fantastic event, I am proud to say I served as a juror. If, between June 20th and June 23rd, you are anywhere near Morgantown,WV, then I highly recommend participating.
