Wednesday, September 28
bio: Takehito Etani creates work in such various media as electronics, wearable technology, installations, sculpture, performance, and video. His work often deals with the body and its daily activities, as well as their relationships to technology. Mundane reality is where he looks for the possibility for self transmutation. His work has been shown internationally including at the ISEA 2006 (International Symposium of Electronic Art), VIPER Basel Festival for Film, Video and New Media, Switzerland, and the Stuttgarter Filmwinter Festival for Expanded Media, Germany, as well as at Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum, Kawasaki, Japan, as a nominee for The 7th Taro Okamoto Memorial Award for Contemporary Art. Etani was born in Aichi, Japan. Beginning in 1997, he traveled for two years throughout India, Nepal, Thailand and Israel, and these experiences continue to inform his work. He received his BFA from Pratt Institute in 2003, his MFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 2006, and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in the summer of 2006.
Wednesday, October 12
bio: Paddy Johnson is the founding editor of the blog Art Fag City and a regular columnist for The L Magazine. Her writing has been featured in New York Magazine, Time Out New York, and The Daily Beast. She regularly lectures on art at universities around the country.

In 2010 she was nominated for a Rob Pruitt Art Award at The Guggenheim and her blog Art Fag City won best Art Blog at The Village Voice web awards.
Wednesday, November 2
bio: Man Bartlett (b. 1981) is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and
works in Brooklyn. He graduated with a BA in Theatre Studies from Emerson College in 2003.
Bartlett has created durational performances that incorporate social media in venues, galleries, and institutions including a Best Buy store, Port Authority Bus Terminal, PPOW Gallery, Winkleman Gallery (#class), Freies Museum (Berlin), and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
These performances are often an absurd convergence of his theater training and experience, years of corporate Internet Marketing jobs, and his interest with esoteric modes of physical and non-physical exchange.
