PANEL EVENT: net_works: net.artists talking offline

Sunday, March 30, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Surrey Art Gallery

Join us for a panel discussion organized in conjunction with two new media works at the Surrey Art Gallery; the innovative electronic artwork Ground Station by Daniel Jolliffe and Jocelyn Robert, and Kate Armstrong's Artist in Residence net.art project Catalogue. The launch of Catalogue: Spring 2003 will also take place on this day to coincide with the conclusion of Kate's residency in the TechLab.

The panel will feature five artists who will discuss and debate the challenges and opportunities of the networked medium. Panelists will include: Jim Andrews, writer, musician, net.artist and programmer who recently served as Artist in Residence at the Centre for Creative Communications in Toronto; photographic and digital media installation artist Deanne Achong, who lectures at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design; poet, hypertext writer and visual artist Randy Adams, who is Associate Editor of the trAce online writing community in Nottingham, England; Jeremy Turner, co-founder of the international 536 artists collective, who is working with avatar worlds and software architectures; and net.artist Kate Armstrong, whose recent projects include Catalogue and the psychogeographical network experiment PING, which will be presented in New York in May. The panel will be moderated by Liane Davison, Curator for the Surrey Art Gallery.

The panel discussion will be followed by a reception to 4:00 pm. Computers will be available during this time for those who wish to informally show their work to others in attendance. Admission to the event is free - donations are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
