Rethinking Art for the Online World: Online Art, Online Exhibitions, Online Audience
The pandemic forced many activities to move online, and the art world was not spared; but what does it mean to move art online? The pandemic provides an opportunity to rethink art on and for the medium of the Internet. Which art is "exhibited" online (as opposed to just "documented")? What is an online exhibition of art? The World-wide web "is" an exhibition of offline art, and any artist's website is an exhibition of the artist's physical art: but is that really an "exhibition"? or is it just the equivalent of a book describing the art? What do artists do online that they don't do in a physical space? What is the role of the curator in an online exhibition? What is the role of the gallery and of the museum for online art?
A discussion with Caroline Jones (Professor of Art History at MIT), Joel Slayton (founder of the CADRE laboratory at SJSU and former Executive Director of Zero1), Chris Chafe (Director of Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics), and Piero Scaruffi (cultural historian, founder of LASER and LAST festival).
