    ANNOUNCEMENT

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Irish Museum of Modern Art website a fake

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    In 2002 and 2003 the Irish Museum of Modern Art held the Net Art Open
    exhibitions which many net artists participated in. Well it probably comes
    as no surprise to find out that irishmuseumofmodernart.com was a fake.

    The site was an intervention by Irish artists Arthur X Doyle and Conor
    McGarrigle conceived as an intervention to protest against IMMA's lack of
    engagement with net art.

    The Net Art Open exhibitions, however, were a real attempt to look at new
    ways of curating net art in an institutional setting. In order for them to
    succeed we obviousely couldn't come out and say that it was a fake outright
    so we included many, many clues as to the real intent so that artists
    submitting would know the score. While we had no qualms about conning museum
    curators this was not an attempt to fool artists. From general feedback we
    received the fact that it was a fake probably increased participation.

    The site is now retired but has been fully archived at Stunned
    http://www.stunned.org/imma which includes the full background to the site,
    press coverage and site referrer logs.

    all the best

    Conor
