Although nothing quite matches the feeling of sitting in someone’s backyard, under a tarp, listening to your neighbours tell stories about their lives, the Fuller Lecture Series folks are using their time during the first ever 2012 Centre For Art Tapes Local Curatorial Residency is to bring a little of that magic to your computer screen. 

Bethany Riordan-Butterworth and Ella Tetrault are “still in planning stages” of their residency, but their goal is “to have a greater online presence, which will mean a broader, more international audience. Ella is in Germany doing her MFA at the Bauhaus University, which is a neat challenge because a lot of this residency will happen online,” says Riordan-Butterworth. “A big part of the residency will be research and development on how to take what we consider special about the live lectures and transfer that onto the internet.”

The CFAT residents are planning a public launch for their online component of the popular lecture series in the fall, but they haven’t abandoned the idea of the great outdoors in the slightest. “We are also hoping very much to continue the Fuller Terrace Lecture Series this summer,” says Riordan-Butterworth, “and are looking at different ways of developing the project.”
