the past year, GLIRT has remained active in communicating with its members art
information of interest to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender community.
James Viskochil agreed to continue as the round table's webmaster.
In 2003 he began on a new position at NYU and was awaiting permission
from the university to use server space there to host the round table web site.
As of the date of this annual report, he still had not received
permission, but is continuing to pursue the matter.
Eric Schwab continued his role in
2003of managing the listserv, hosted by Cornell.
Recently, Schwab announced his resignation from Cornell effective
February 2004. After a discussion
on the listserv, it was decided that the listserv
should end rather than continue in a new format or location.
It was decided by the members that the listserv had served its purpose
and that all GLIRT-related information can be posted hereafter to ARLIS-L.
the round table has not officially sponsored anything for the 2004 ARLIS/NA
conference, Roberto C. Ferrari and Sherman Clarke were responsible for
submitting a proposal for a panel session entitled "The Queer Art
World" which was accepted for the New York conference.
The session will be moderated by
Ferrari and Clarke and have three speakers from the gay/lesbian art world:
Ernesto Pujol, artist; Maura Reilly, art historian/curator; and Barbara Levy,
gallery owner. The session will be held
on Sunday, April 18, 2004.
will hold its next business meeting on Saturday, April 17, 2004 during the ARLIS/NA
for the Executive Board:
understand that the Board is continuing to evaluate the structure of round
tables. We would like the Board to
continue recognizing round tables as
important components of ARLIS/NA, as they offer special-interest groups an
opportunity to share information and learn from one another about the events of
interest to that special group. This
information might not necessarily be as
easily disseminated in another way.
