Dear friends and Tesla enthusiasts:

January is the time to remember Tesla! 

We at Tesla Science Foundation, with many pivotal activities in 2014 behind us, are gearing up for the 3rd Tesla Memorial Conference that will take place at the historic the New Yorker Hotel in New York City

                             Please save January 10th 2015 for Tesla!

This year’s conference “Let’s Create the Tesla Curriculum” signifies the original platform for Tesla Science Foundation, whose main goal is to incorporate the legacy of Nikola Tesla into the official school curriculum in the United States and around the world. This year we are preparing a first class line-up of expert presenters and we will update you with the final list of participants by mid-October. In the meantime we welcome your suggestions, leads and ideas – and please put this important event on your calendar!

3rd Tesla Memorial Conference program will be as follows: 

9am – 6 pm      Tesla Conference: “Let’s create a Tesla Curriculum”

9am – 11 pm    Tesla exhibit: Past. Present. Future.

7 pm – 8 pm     Tesla Bust Unveiling at the New Yorker Hotel

8pm – 11 pm    Tesla Spirit Awards 2015 Gala Benefit

Tesla Spirit Awards Gala Benefit program will recognize a number of prominent speakers, dignitaries, artists and distinguished scientific individuals who contributed to promoting Tesla and will receive Tesla Spirit Award in 8 categories.

Tesla Bust Unveiling will be a special highlight of the evening. The New Yorker Hotel is the “mecca” for Tesla followers around the world and this will permanently mark the hotel as the one of the historical destinations where Tesla lived and worked for the last 10 years of his life.

We hope you will be joining us in January and we want to remind you of our TS Foundation goals and plans as we are planning our 2015 agenda. We ask for your kind support.

Lidija Slavkovic’s “A Plan: Vacation” Exhibition in NYC

     If you’re in NYC during October check out Lidija Slavkovic’s exhibition in Studio Vendome Projects.  

A Plan: Vacation, Lidija Slavkovic’s first New York exhibition, will be on view at Studio Vendome Projects (30 Grand Street, New York, NY) from October 22 – November 22, 2014. The exhibition will include drawings of landscapes made with acrylic, graphite, charcoal pencil, and coffee.

The title of the exhibition A Plan: Vacation has a double meaning – the most obvious is one’s associations with seascapes and landscapes as vacation destinations. The more important aspect is that the title reflects how Slavkovic thinks about retrieving her imagery from what are generally considered “Landscapes,” and therefore immediately being reduced to metaphor.

“I see my work as an object of attention, in that the work is a reflection of my relationship to some ‘thing’,” says Slavkovic. “I acknowledge that my concept is only an impermanent objectification of sensation, thus I think of my drawings not as an art work but as the result of the work of art.”

Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Slavkovic earned a BFA in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade in 1999. She lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia and Miami, Florida.
