 Vishal Rawlley begins residency at OBORO New Media Laboratory
In February 2007, the Foundation was pleased to announce that Vishal Rawlley (India) had been named the grant recipient of the Research and Experimentation Residency in Montreal for Professional Artists from Emerging Countries or Regions. This residency program is offered jointly by the Daniel Langlois Foundation and OBORO, a Montreal centre promoting the production and presentation of contemporary and new media art and art practices.

Mr. Rawlley arrived in Montreal on February 26 to begin his residency, and he will work at the OBORO lab until the end of April. The objective of his residency is to develop the three technical components of his Voice Wave project (formerly known as Legend of the Sea Lord), notably:
A) the telecommunications component, which includes an interactive voice response (IVR) system and a voice mail management system;
B) the submersible lighting device
C) the synchronization system for the two previous components.

 9 Evenings Reconsidered at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery (Montreal)
Through its financial support and the loan of artifacts from its collection, the Foundation has made possible the presentation in Montreal of the exhibition 9 Evenings Reconsidered: Art, Theatre, and Engineering, 1966.

Originally presented at the MIT List Visual Center (Cambridge, MA, U.S.) in 2006, 9 Evenings Reconsidered: Art, Theatre, and Engineering, 1966 will be featured at Concordia University’s Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery from March 9 to April 21, 2007.

Organized by independent curator Catherine Morris, the exhibition will showcase extensive archival material associated with this event and offer various viewpoints of the 10 performances presented at the 69th Regiment Armory in 1966. The Foundation has loaned a number of objects and materials from its 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds to the exhibition, including, among others, a sample of the factual footage produced by Alfons Schilling, stage props, technological components, and technical drawings by engineer Fred Waldhauer. 

Conferences and panel discussions will also be held during the 9 Evenings Reconsidered exhibition, among them:

Wednesday, March 21, at 5:30 p.m.: When Artists and Engineers Meet: Divergencies in Concept and Process. Panel discussion with professors Joey Berzowska, Ana Cappelluto, Sudhir Mudur, Reza Soleymani and Leila Sujir. Moderator: Sylvie Lacerte.

An illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition. For more information, please consult the Web site of the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery:
