Alanna Heiss, Founder and Director of Clocktower Productions, is a leader of the early 1970’s alternative spaces movement in New York City, which radically changed the way large-scale art projects were produced, shown, and seen. In 1972 she created the Clocktower Gallery, and in 1976 she founded P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA PS1) which she directed for 32 years, and transformed into an internationally renowned non-collecting center for the production and presentation of contemporary art. Heiss has produced landmark exhibitions with artists, such as John Baldessari, Richard Serra, and Alex Katz.
Since 1981, the Steven & Dorothea Green Critics’ Lecture Series has introduced internationally renowned artists, museum curators, scholars and critics to the South Florida Community. These speakers have shaped art history through their scholarly, creative, and leadership contributions. They have inspired us to think critically, investigate further, and consider the discourses and practices that shape the world of art.

Fourth Annual Colombian Student & Professional Conference
- We are Colombia! It is important for all attendees to immerse themselves in all areas of Colombian culture, beyond what is commonly portrayed by the media. We intend to provide this experience during the conference by bringing speakers who can discuss Colombia’s cultural diversity, importance, influence in its society, and how it has changed its image worldwide. In addition, various performances will be taking place during lunch break; including traditional dances by UF Sabor Latino dance team.
- We are professional development! Students and different entities interested in Colombian industry, will have the opportunity of having different speakers that will explain how culture and different factors are hand in hand with the industrial and economic development of a country like Colombia.
- We are Philanthropy! The idea of this conference is through different panels showcase the different ideals about how Colombia is paving its way to progress. Attendees to the conference, especially non Colombian attendees, will be able to understand more about the Colombian culture, how the industrial development has progressed over time and how its economy is growing.
In accordance with FIU’s Diversity Week, the Center for Women’s and Gender is proud to announce its 100 Women initiative. Each year, we will acknowledge several women from different fields at FIU to celebrate and champion their stories, to create an inspiring culture of diversity, accomplishment, collectivism, and collegiality. The selected women will be featured in various media, culminating in a celebration to help define the role of women in the 21st century and the role of women in the academy.
Please join us for our second annual event in recognition of these inspirational women!
