Cyborgs, activists, and dead squirrels. Yum.

Our entirely biased, completely compromised listing advises readers to head out to “Art and the Cloud,” a discussion about collecting digital art moderated by AFC’s Paddy Johnson. Panelists include controversial art advisor and collector Stefan Simchowitz, collector David Diamond, independent curator and consultant Myriam Vanneschi, and Transfer Gallery founder Kelani Nichole.
