All apologies to readers of this site for my absence of late which can be attributed to both my regular arts educator duties and extensive preparation for my upcoming session at the College Art Association's 100th Annual Conference. My colleague and friend, Nana Last, will join me to tackle emergent issues and theories surrounding the contemporary practice of accumulation. We have assembled an international roster of speakers for this panel and I look forward to sharing insights and impressions gained from this experience in later posts.
