University at Buffalo
Web registration now available! Specially-priced advance registration offered during March 2011 only!
If you are interested in the emerging edge of language-informed arts practice, whether as a poet, writer, artist, media innovator, scholar, teacher, performer, or in any other disciplines, E-Poetry offers a context for practice and analysis that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. For its tenth anniversary, E-Poetry has been brought back to Buffalo, a central and accessible location for its activities. It will provide a mix of practices, with the emphasis on emerging practices in multiple disciplines that find themselves embedded or even just on the edge of the digital. It will convene a celebratory (in the triumphant spirit of preceding historic poetry festivals) and thought-filled gathering of 150 artists, writers, and scholars from 40 countries — a diversity and culturally rich offering that won’t be found elsewhere.

Featuring work by Mark Shepard, J.T. Rinker and Alexandra Spaulding
Curated by Stefani Bardin
About the Exhibition:
The Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa wrote a book entitled The Eyes of the Skin: Architecture and the Senses in which he argued against the isolating ocular-centric paradigm in western culture and its impact on phenomenology in favor of a more holistic model of multi-sensory architecture of integration. The series of exhibitions at The Burchfield
Penney Art Center The Eyes of the Skin: Art and the Senses shifts the focus from visually based art toward work that is grounded in a sensorium of sound, smell, taste and touch.
Work from each individual sense will occupy the for a period of months so the public can focus on each of the four senses separately and over a period of time in order to experience the environment within a different
phenomenological model. After each of the four exhibitions, there will be a comprehensive group show in 2012 throughout the museum, of all the work from each of the four senses (plus some new artists and some new
pieces) that will allow the public to be immersed in this holistic and re-envisioned sensorium of perception.
The first exhibition, Sound, will be an investigation into what Marshall McLuhan calls the re-casting of technology with which to understand and act on the world. The three artists: Mark Shepard, J.T. Rinker and Alexandra Spaulding utilize different aural modalities but also different lenses through which to cultivate and express acoustical

CEPA Gallery presents:
Nina Leo & Stefani Bardin
@ CEPA Gallery, 617 Main Street, Buffalo, New York 14203
Friday, December 4, 2009 from 6-8 pm.
Free and open to the public.
The Market Arcade building was once part of ‘the belly of buffalo’, connecting the stretch of Main Street with the flourishing public market that formerly existed at Washington and Chippewa streets. As a means for reconsidering the role of community interactions in contemporary culture this installation transplants sensorial triggers (recorded audio and manufactured scents) from the still vibrant Jean-Talon Market in Montreal into the Arcade.
marketplace is an investigation into the erosion of every day community interactions within capitalist societies. Where city centers were once brimming with the sights, sounds and smells of people gathering sustenance, engaging in social interactions and exploring each other’s cultures, they are now, in many cities, silent and abandoned remains of failed capitalist endeavors. The fall of community-based markets in lieu of decentralized urban sprawl and technology-based consumerism has, in effect, replaced the phenomenological world of the spice route with the one-dimensional world of the cyber route.
marketplace will run on the following schedule:
Friday, 12/4 6-8 pm
Saturday, 12/5 12-2 pm
Friday, 12/11 6-8 pm
Saturday, 12/12 12-2 pm
Friday, 12/18 6-8 pm
Saturday, 12/19 12-2 pm
Nina Leo is in installation artist working primarily in sculpture, drawing, sound and scent. Her work explores the manufacture of isolation and the redesign of intimacy in contemporary environments, looking specifically at how estrangement from direct multi-sensorial engagement might redefine our experience, influence our sense of self and shape our sociopolitical perceptions. She holds an Honors B.A. in Visual Arts from the University of Western Ontario and is currently completing her MFA at the University at Buffalo. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and public institutions in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. She is represented in Toronto by The Red Head Gallery.
Stefani Bardin is a media maker whose work situates itself at the intersections of food, technology and science. By examining industrial food production and using such tools as artificial food smells and gastroenterology technology she examines how our food systems have been altered through the modern influences of technology and corporate culture. She has presented her work nationally and internationally at venues including the University of Technology Sydney, UCLA Hammar Museum, The Slade School of Art, Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center and Alfred University. She currently teaches in the Department of Media Study at the University at Buffalo.

Council on Arts Video Regrant (2007) for production of video works that have been screened at numerous symposiums and exhibit venues including the Western New York Media Art Exhibition, and Out of the Cube Symposium. She is currently a graduate student at The University of Buffalo, Department of Media Study.
Squeaky Wheel’s Here &; Now Regional Artist Showcase is currently accepting submissions from emerging and established media artists that reside in Western New York. All genres, styles, and length are welcome! Installation artists and performers are also encouraged to apply.

Conversation Pieces (featuring the performative scent/sound installation, marketplace, by Media Study’s Stefani Bardin) is an exhibition that brings together projects by artists who stage, subvert, provoke, intervene in or document public dialogues. These projects have multiple, often interrelated objectives: claiming public space, time and attention to start specific conversations around specific issues; questioning the current states, definitions, and limits of dialogue in the public realm; and presenting alternative possibilities for or re-imaginings of the public through various models of participation in (variously public) dialogues.
