Collecting, Preserving, Displaying
and Lending Digital Media-Based Art
Tuesday, January 9
Panel discussion and visual presentation
Digital multimedia art forms have been created for several years and are now entering the mainstream art world. Milestone exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial included digital works as early as 2000; university art departments around the United States are formalizing digital media programs; textbooks and publications feature digital art; and gradually museums and private collectors are beginning to accession digital media works into their art collections.
Michael Spalter (The Anne and Michael SpaIter Digital Art Collection), Anna Frants (CYLAND Media Art Lab), Carla Gannis, and moderator Natalia Kolodzei will address the issues of collecting, preserving, and curating these dynamic, ephemeral, fragile and vulnerable works or techniques that rely on digital technology in creative and display processes.
