Gallery Talk: SMS and Experimental Poetry
Dr. Nick Monfort is a specialist in the history of electronic literature and a practicing digital poet. In conversation with Michael Maizels, Mellon Curator of New Media Art, Dr. Montfort will discuss the principle of coding that is essential to the many of the works in the SMS portfolios, and the relationship of these explorations to the birth of the modern computer. Compiled between 1967 and 1968, the SMS series was one of several important experimental ventures that sought to destabilize the boundary between traditional media, while also making work by the day’s leading artists accessible to those outside of the collector class. Through the generous gift of Nancy Gray Sherrill, Class of 1954, the Davis holds the complete portfolio, which includes work by Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Kosuth and Roy Lichtenstein alongside music by La Monte Young and Terry Riley.

Women in Modern Iranian Cinema: The Day I Became a Woman
Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - 6:00pm Location: Collins Cafe In partnership with the Cinema and Media Studies program, the Davis presents this series of film screenings dedicated to exploring the groundbreaking achievements of women directors in modern Iranian cinema. Proportionally speaking, there have been more high profile female directors in Iran than in several Western countries, despite the hardships of women in post-Revolutionary Iran. These films range from drama to comedy and explore a broad range of topics, suspending generalizations of Iranian society and provoking curiosity. These selections highlight just a few of these critically-acclaimed films - sure to delight cinephiles, art-lovers, and everyone in-between. Generously supported by the Davis Museum Film Program Gift. March 11: The Day I Became a Woman (2000, Dir. Marziyeh Meshkini) Meshkini's filmtells the interconnected stories of three Iranian women struggling with their female identity at different stages in their lives. Winner of three awards at the 2000 Venice Film Festival, The Day I Became a Woman has been described as "Felliniesque" by several critics and was temporarily banned upon its release in Iran.

Proven and Repeatable Sales Process: PRSP (U of CEO Business Workshop)

Do you struggle with ANY of the following?

  • A large gap between the performance of GREAT salespeople in your organization, and “average” sales people?
  • Feel like you’re held hostage by your sales force?
  • Wishing your sales process was more predictable, and that more of the leads would become closed deals?

If the answer is YES, then this is for you! 
Gain control of your sales process!

Learn what is PRSP (Proven and Repeatable Sales Process), and how to make one

Discuss the benefits of having a PRSP

Conduct group exercises during this exercise about some key components about effective PRSPs, including world-class “microscripts”…what they are and how to use them.

We’ll also go over the sales MODEL…

  • Why the traditional model of a “funnel” doesn’t work for small and medium sized businesses
  • How to minimize “randomness”, and maximize effectiveness
  • Replace “talent driven” sales results with “process driven” systems
  • Reduce stress!

Does your business have enough PROSPECTS?

We’ll go over the VALUE of a prospect, some solutions to get more prospects (PRPP=Proven and Repeatable Prospecting Process), and why you may want to separate “marketing” (generating leads) from Sales (closing deals)!

We’ll also share and discuss some best practices, and creative, innovative, solutions to help your company get more sales!

Public Tour: Hanging with the Old Masters
Special exhibition tours are led by a Student Guide and are free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. All tours start at 2:00pm and meet in the Davis lobby. Showcasing Old Master Italian paintings under consideration for the upcoming reinstallation of the permanent collection galleries, the fifth floor of the Davis Museum will become a laboratory for the exploration of the curatorial process. One wall will be lined with 3D models of the Davis Museum on a smaller scale, affording visitors, students, and faculty alike transparent access to the reinstallation process. The other three walls of the space will be devoted to understanding the curatorial process through the exhibition of Old Master Italian paintings. Issues and concerns—including questions of display, conservation, and aesthetics—that inform whether an individual work of art will be included in the reinstallation will be explored and, hopefully, demystified for the viewer.
