Owen F. Smith, director of the Intermedia MFA program at the University of Maine, will participate in a panel Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at the Maine College of Art in Portland on Intermedia as part of discussion sponsored by Portland Ovations. Titled “Post-Performance Lecture: Inter-media Panel Discussion,” the discussion is from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The panel is being presented in conjunction with the work VOYEUR by Bridgman/Packer Dance, which is being performed Oct. 5-6. VOYEUR is a new dance-film work by choreographers Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper and commissioned by Portland Ovations. The panel also includes ICA Director Daniel Fuller, associate ICA professor of sculpture Ling-Wen Tsai, and the visiting choreographers in an examination of the relationship between dance and visual and media arts.
