To Whom It May Concern,
This is a letter of introduction for Mr. Ture Sjolander, Swedish artist and administrator. Mr. Sjolander is an important and influential personality in the Swedish and European art communities, having been active as an artist since the mid ninteen fifties.
He instigated the establishment of the Video-Nu Video Centrum in Stockholm, an unique artist run co-operative designed to facilitate and distribute artists video.
Being among the first artists to utilise new media as video, Mr. Sjolander is well placed to give lectures and workshops on this subject at all levels.
I personally came to know Mr. Sjolander when I was visiting the Video-Nu centre as Artist-In-Residence during 1986, and I found him warm, helpful and efficient in his roles of Director at the centre and as a host.
I believe that a visit by Mr. Sjolander to Australia would be of considerable benefit to artists there, wheter active in video or other media. For this reason I feel that support should be given to his visit through the facilitating of lectures and workshops in art schools, art spaces and similar institutions.
I hope that you can find the time to give M. Sjolanders  project the serious consideration it deserves and perhaps help him in some way with this undertaking.
Yours Sincerely
Australian Artist, in Europe
