welcome to 

"silica conversations" 

Under my “about” page you can find some biographical information about me and a shortened version of my c.v.   


Under the “news” section I will be adding commentary on recent art practices, pieces of conversations I am having with artists, and informal book reviews.   


Under “lectures” I have assembled a collection of possible talks aimed for a range of art institutions-- schools, museums, non-profit organizations—that might wish to bring me in as a visiting lecturer.  I am happy to discuss other topics in sculptural practices; and I am willing to come as a visiting critic.  


Under “contact” you may send me a personal message or join my email list.  


Thank you for spending time at the site.   Mary
