Online and Offline: Curatorial and Artistic Responses to a Transitioning Internet

Online and Offline: Curatorial and Artistic Responses to a Transitioning Internet | Thursday 20 June 2013 | RUA RED

This symposium offers an in-depth dialogue between leading curators whose practice engages with the Internet as a site for cultural production. Drawing upon personal and practical experiences, the panellists bring together critical and creative investigations of new media and curatorial practices. The Internet represents an emerging space – the terms of which are constantly being negotiated – and in a short time has become a powerful platform for innovation, politics, economic growth and creative practice. The panellists represent a broad cross-section of curators whose distinct interests and models of practice use information technologies not only as a medium and tool, but also as an integral part of the curatorial process [1]. Speculating upon the interrelationship between online culture, digital technologies and curatorial practice, speakers will discuss how the role of curator and artist is transitioning, not only with the growth of digital technologies, but also through the offline factors that continue to affect how the Internet as a creative platform is developed.
