Residencies: Insights – A talk by Researcher-in-Residence Mary Sherman (United States)

20 Nov 2015, Fri 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Artist, critic, director and founder of the international arts organisation TransCultural Exchange, Mary Sherman will introduce TransCultural Exchange’s international conferences which were originally created to help American artists and arts organisations become aware of the networks of international residencies that exist around the globe. The benefits of statistical information gathered by TransCultural Exchange has successfully advocated for the vital and important creative role that Artists-in-Residence play in today’s increasingly interconnected and results-driven world.

Mary Sherman is an artist, curator and the director of TransCultural Exchange, which she founded in Chicago in 1989. She also teaches at Boston College and Northeastern University and, recently, served as the interim Associate Director of MIT’s Program in Art, Culture and Technology.
