Book launch of Ineffably Urban: Imaging Buffalo
Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center @ 7:00 PM
On Thursday, May 1st 2014 @ 07:00 PM at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, Miriam Paeslack, Assistant Professor, in the Arts Management Program and editor of Ineffably Urban: Imaging Buffalo (Ashgate publishers), together with some of the book's authors will be promoting the hardcover book that revolves around Buffalo’s artistic, historical, and architectural positions.
The lavishly illustrated book assembles the voices of artists, planners, scholars and activists to build a more complex image of the city. UB faculty members from the departments of Media Study, Visual Studies, Architecture, History, and American Studies as well as scholars, artists, and activists from Buffalo and beyond discuss their understanding of this shrinking yet culturally thriving post-industrial city. In each position, the ineffability, i.e. the impossibility to fully grasp the image of any city is acknowledged, leaving Buffalo ultimately in a state of the “ineffably urban.”

Summer School in Vienna
Each year the UB Arts Management Program organizes a Summer School. In 2014, it will take place in Vienna, hosted and organised by EDUCULT.
The Program has chosen the Austrian capital as destination for this year’s Summer School. Artistically diverse offers ranging from community-based projects to classical culture display Vienna’s successes and challenges in the area of culture and integration. The aims of the study trip are to field-research and discuss these issues from the perspective of US and European arts management and cultural policy, looking into international and regional differences and similarities.
The topic: "Mainstreaming Emigrants or Tourists? Towards a new relationship between cultural and integration policy: cultural offering in a demographically changing environment” provides the students with a broad range of impressions of the Viennese arts and cultural scene from a cultural policy, educational, organisational and curatorial perspective.
Our partner this year is EDUCULT - Institute for Cultural Policy and Management, a not for profit organization dedicated to applied research and professional project management in the domains of culture, education, and policy.
