Project Description: "Hello! My Name is..." is a site-specific intervention of artist-created conference badges designed for anonymous distribution during the 98th Annual conference in Chicago. Drawing on the required reading of the ubiquitous name badge in conference settings, contributing artists have created messages in response to the context of this academic and social networking event for art professionals. Approximately 100 badges will be anonymously distributed within the conference and arranged on tables in the standard grid fashion typical of a reception area. Each badge will be printed on the back with "This is public art. www.invisiblevenue.com" to direct attention to complete project details, documentation and a full suite of contributions online: Click here to download HelloMyNameis_webfolio

The paper will be published in digital format by the College Art Association and will be republished in Issue 9 of Art Practical . Click here to download CLF_CAAFinal.v3
