Greetings:

The Art & Technology Lectures at Columbia University's School of the Arts
will focus this semester on Open Source Culture: Intellectual Property,
Technology, and the Arts. Speakers will address the legal, technological,
and conceptual issues that confront artists and engineers in the age of open
source culture.

Please join us for a lecture by Joy Garnett at 6:00 PM this Thursday,
September 23, in 702 Hamilton Hall. A map showing where Hamilton Hall is
located is available at

Joy is a painter and editor of NEWSgrist, a blog focusing on art, politics
and digital culture. In Riot, her most recent solo exhibition at Debs & Co.
in New York, she presented paintings based on news photographs of figures in
states of emotional or physical extremity. Garnett typically produces work
where different media, idioms and paradigms converge. In 2000 she created
The Bomb Project, a web resource conceived and designed for artists and
activists interested in making politically relevant work about nuclear
issues. She is currently working on a series of painting about war and
global nomadism.

On Thursday, Joy will speak about her recent run in with a litigious
photographer.

The Art & Technology Lectures will continue through the fall with Jeffrey
Cunard on October 28, Siva Vaidhyanathan on November 18, Jon Ippolito on
December 2, and Cory Arcangel on December 16.
