  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

Holly Tempo: 2008 TLC Technology Grant Report


Excerpt:

Project Implementation:

In late January 2008, my class of eight students attended a workshop presented by Heather Cleary on how to create e-portfolios. I spent many hours researching existing e-portfolios on the Otis website. I made suggestions to students about how they might want to structure their portfolios based on what I observed to be the more successful examples. Students were then instructed to create an e-portfolio, or update existing ones. By mid-February, everyone had a new or updated e-portfolio on O-Space. I also created an e-portfolio for myself for the first time.

Specific project activities included the following:

  • Attendance at workshops presented by Heather Cleary (two for me; one for students in class)
  • Researching e-portfolio offerings on O-Space and identifying best practices
  • Helping students troubleshoot e-portfolio creation/updates
  • Monitoring student e-portfolio activity
  • Creation of my own e-portfolio
  • Researching Fine Arts Department presence on e-portfolios
  • Sharing project with Fine Arts Department Assistant Chair, Christine Reynolds
  • Surveying student satisfaction with e-portfolios
  • Compiling survey data and writing report
