J.Morgan Puett will inaugurate Boston's Berwick Research Institute's DiR Convivial Symposia Series. Puett will be expanding on her 'Curriculum for New and Emergent Practices' and discussing topics raised during her residency at the Berwick Research Institute. You are invited to engage the artist in dialogue around recent projects, specifically Mildred's Lane .
Her childhood reminiscence of home life in rural Georgia flavors many aspects of her work, which straddle the lines of fashion, architecture, and art. The daughter of a third generation beekeeper and painter, respectively, Puett focuses on clothing design/textile and costume, as well as the recreation of milieus that recollect her well-worn southern rural heritage.

As a kick-off to his tenure as DiR, Leon Johnson has initiated a series of symposia through which the Berwick will draw together leading creative thinkers to provide state-of-the-art research on questions relating to the cultivation of, and engagement with, new audiences; the incubation, initiation, and distribution of new works in convergent media; and strategies to build and sustain networks of knowledge and collaboration. The results of these symposia will form the nucleus of a Berwick-authored publication slated for release in 2010.
