Curating Digital Art
From Presenting and Collecting Digital Art to Networked Co-Curation
What is the role of the curator when organizing digital art exhibitions in offline and online spaces?
Analyzing the influence and impact of curating digital art through more than 20 interviews with artists and curators plus an extensive timeline, this book focuses on how the work of curators, artists and designers created fresh possibilities for reconfiguring traditional models for presenting and accessing digital art.
Curating Digital Art addresses how web-based practices challenge certain established museological values and precipitate alternative ways of understanding art's stewardship, curatorial responsibility, public access and art history. Through more than twenty interviews with artists and curators in the course of the last ten years, and supplemented by an extensive timeline, readers are given an insight into the discourse on digital art and its curation today.
