PLASMA brings performances, lectures, and screenings to UB


One of the things I loved about working at Buffalo Spree was discovering cool events happening in and around WNY. I don’t work at Spree any longer (although I am a freelancer), but having this site still allows me to occasionally promote interesting events at Hallwalls, Squeaky Wheel, etc.

Here is one: The University at Buffalo’s Department of Media Study has launched a new speakers series called PLASMA — Performances, Lectures, and Screenings in Media Art. It “explores the newest developments of media art,” and features a great lineup. As a DMS graduate, I love seeing news like this.

All events are free, and take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Center for the Arts, room 112. I spent a LOT of time in room 112.

The first event, on February 10, featured multi-media performance artist Cynthia Hopkins. Here is a run-down of what’s come, starting with today:

FEBRUARY 17: Jay Sanders (curator for the Whitney museum)

MARCH 3: Tony Cokes:  (video and multi-media artist)

MARCH 31: Tony Oursler (video and multimedia artist)

APRIL 7: Katherine Behar (New York-based interdisciplinary artist)

APRIL 21  Alessandra Renzi (interdisciplinary artist)
