  • Location:

Lauren Cornell is Executive Director of Rhizome.org and Adjunct Curator of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, as well as a UCSC (University of California, Santa Cruz) Porter College Distinguished Visiting Lecturer.

In this presentation, Cornell will trace the evolution of art engaged with the Internet from the the time of Rhizome's founding in 1996 up through its diverse, current iterations. She will present new directions and practices in the field and illuminate the underlying economics and structures surrounding this field.

She also serves as Adjunct Curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York. Previously, Cornell worked as a curator, writer and director in New York. She worked in the Andy Warhol Film Project at the Whitney Museum and, from 2002-2004, she served as Executive Director of Ocularis, an organization dedicated to avant-garde cinema, experimental video and new media. Her writing has been published in a range of international publications and she has collaborated to produce events or exhibitions at The Kitchen, Foxy Production, Participant Inc, The Institute of Contemporary Art in London and the Contemporary Center for Art in Warsaw.
