> on International Opportunities in the Arts were created for this reason.
> Produced every other year, their main aim is to let artists know about the
> wealth of opportunities for them to participate, interact and work with
> international peers. These conferences bring together hundreds of artists
> with speakers from more than forty countries—curators, critics, gallery
> dealers and artist-in-residency directors. This year's activities range
> from a performance by Laurie Anderson, tours of MIT's Art and Architecture
> program, a session hosted by the International Art Critics Association
> (AICA), informal gatherings, and panel discussions to portfolio reviews.
> The conference schedule is available at www.transculturalexchange.org.

> University<http://interspire.e-flux.com/link.php?M=339117&N=6868&L=13280&F=H>as this year's academic host, the bulk of the panels will take place at the
> school's George Sherman Union with other activities throughout Boston and
> Cambridge, including at MIT, Harvard University, the Boston Center for the
> Arts and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. This year's theme, "Engaging
> Minds," is meant to encourage artists not only to attend programs where
> they can become acquainted with other cultures and meet/work with their
> international peers, but also to address many artists' growing desire to
> engage in other fields of study. Speakers, such as astronomer and Voyager
> team scientist Merav Opher, biomedical modeling inventor Crispin Weinberg,
> *New York Times* best-selling author Reif Larsen, cognitive interaction
> technologist Florian Grond and fashion designer Carla Fernandez have been
> invited to engage artists in their work—to inspire and serve as a catalysts
> for new avenues of artistic exploration and new points of intersection,
> where barriers dissolve and alternate forms of understanding evolve.
> The legendary pioneer in performance and electronic music Laurie Anderson
> will serve as the conference keynote speaker/performer. The winner of the
> 2010 German sound prize, Florian Dombois, will create a temporary public
> artwork for the occasion, which includes shooting a red laser through the
> Boston skyline; and a showcase of Taiwanese new media works will be on view
> in Boston University's 808 Gallery.
> Also among the many speakers are Jean-Baptiste Joly, founder and director
> of Germany's Akademie Schloss Solitude; Ariene Koek, director of
> Collide at CERN's artist-in-residency program; Laura Harrison, documentary
> film producer and president of the Bogliasco Foundation in Italy; Taylor
> Van Horne, founding director of Brazil's Instituto Sacatar; Andrei Siciodi,
