Notability of Eileen Maxson[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Eileen Maxson requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Undeath (talk) 14:13, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Welcome![edit]

I'm sorry your first attempt at adding to Wikipedia seems to have been in vain - but I think we can at least mitigate that!

Here's some suggestions:

  1. The page you created was almost verbatim a copy/paste of the fotofest.org website. Wikipedia has a strict policy on copyright infringements - namely there can be none. So if you want to create an article on FotoFest, it will need to be at least rewritten.
  2. In order to create an article, it should be a "notable" organization / event. Please read Wikipedia's notability requirements. The short version is that there should be substantial coverage about FotoFest in reliable third-party sources.
  3. I recommend creating the article in your own userspace - meaning you can create any page under your username, like User:Vinodoscope/FotoFest. If/When the article is ready, you can move it out of your userspace into mainspace.

I hope that helps! Feel free to write me if you have any other questions. Thanks! -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 02:13, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

backup[edit]

Eileen Maxson is a video and installation artist. Born in suburban Long Island, New York and raised there, in New Jersey and Texas, her work is known for its cynical and humorous portrayals of lonely suburban life. Maxson's work is filled with a myriad of historical, pop culture and media references from MTV's The Real World to Lyndon Baines Johnson. To date, most of her work is produced alone and features Maxson as the lone character. In spite of this she has rejected a common label as the "Cindy Sherman for the MySpace generation." [1]

Maxson first studied video while a photography student at the University of Houston and was early on introduced to pioneering Houston microcinema, The Aurora Picture Show and its dynamic founder Andrea Grover. Maxson's inclusion in the "Best of Aurora" video collections [2] was instrumental in exposing her work to critics both in and out of Texas. She initiated the film and video component of the Houston-based photographic biennial, FotoFest, in 2004.

In the early 2000s Maxson began to work in installation and completed her first video installation for the San Antonio's Cactus Bra art space [1].

In 2005 Maxson was named as a finalist for the inaugural Texas Prize, a $30,000 art prize established by the Austin, Texas non-profit Arthouse[2] and the largest art prize in the region at the time. Maxson was awarded the prize in a ceremony presided over by former Texas Governor Ann Richards. [3]

After winning the prize Maxson left Texas to pursue graduate studies at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She will graduate in May 2008.

Maxon has shown at venues across the United States including screenings and exhibitions at Aurora Picture Show, Houston; Betty Rymer Gallery, Chicago; The Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas; DiverseWorks, Houston; Museo Tamayo de Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City; LACMA, Los Angeles; New York Underground Film Festival, New York; Ocularis, Brooklyn; and the Portland Documentary and Experimental Film Festival, Portland.

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Eileen Maxson, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.
