CAA 2020 Recap: Jevi

2020 Judson-Morrissey Fellows 2 DAYS AWAY. Hi! I’m Jevi, and this February I received the 2020 Judson-Morrisey Excellence in New Media Award from the New Media Caucus.

2020 Judson-Morrissey Fellow Winning the Judson-Morrissey Scholarship to attend the College Art Association Conference in Chicago was a huge contribution to my research and practice. Being a relatively young artist, at the beginning of my career, it was helpful to speak with other artists in New Media, to discuss the ways that technology, and new media were informing their practice. The highlight being the New Media Caucus Showcase in which national artists shared their research, and explorations. This event was also an opportunity to network and asks questions. To my surprise artists were willing to share their techniques, and experiences…
