A sporadic newsletter about artnetweb


Greetings from artnetweb:

There's plenty going on around here lately including our newly
expanded class schedule (see below) and planning the next PORT
exhibition. This newsletter is a long one so we'll get on with
it and keep this introduction short. 

Otherwise, we've had a few warm days here in New York and can't
wait for those long hot summer days when we can open up the
artnetweb beach house and enjoy the breeze, martini in hand,
from the veranda.

As always we invite your comments and suggestions. Our general
email address is:

Best regards,

Remo Campopiano |

PORT has sailed away from the MIT List Visual Arts Center and will
dock at another destination soon. The MIT List Center Web site
will remain up as documentation, as will the listserv archives.
We're putting together the print catalogue and talking to possible
future PORTs-of-call and it looks like something will happen this
summer as well as the fall. Check the PORT Web site periodically
for new information. 

Meanwhile, you can view screen shots and views from the gallery,
the transcript from the gallery roundtable held on the last day
as well as the catalogue essays all on the Web site.

If you would like a 500-page catalogue of the PORT project, call
remo at 212-925-1885.
