New Ways to See:
Digital Art Criticism Now

TUE, Nov 29, 2016
6:30–8 pm

Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

Christiane Paul and Nora Khan—recipients of the Thoma Foundation's 2016 Arts Writing Awards in Digital Art—discuss current issues in digital art with Ian Cheng and Clement Valla, two artists on whose work they have written. Paul, Khan, and the artists talk about topics explored in their respective writings and projects, with a focus on the ways in which networked technologies and computation shape and place productive pressure on creative expression. They will also discuss challenges inherent in writing about digital art, and will address the ways in which both artists would like to see their work—and digital practices as a whole—represented and analyzed in arts publications. The discussion is moderated by Brian Droitcour, Associate Editor and Online Editor at Art in America. This event is produced in collaboration with the Thoma Foundation.

Tickets are required ($10 adults, $8 members, students and seniors).
