ART, TALK AND POWERPOINT
by Suzaan Boettger
The annual College Art Association conference has become a monster with a thousand tentacles -- each one with a PowerPoint presentation. Typically, the CAA offers about 75 illustrated lectures at 15 concurrent panels every two and a half hours, a panoply that is repeated eight times over four days, with shorter sessions squeezed into the interstices. If you have a taste for visual arcana and its interpretation, this is the place to be.
