Feature on JavaMuseum: Italian NetArt


Press Release

JavaMuseum
Forum for Internet Technologies in Contemporary Art
www.javamuseum.org
(Java=Joint Advanced Virtual Affairs)

is happy to launch the first feature
within the 2nd of Java series 2002, entitled:

"Actual Positions of Italian NetArt"

The title already says, that in Italy exists a "scene" of artists working
with and in the new environment: Internet, and further that this growing
scene is more than worth to be spotlighted.

"Italy represents the craddle of European culture and art. During the
centuries, continously came exciting impulses from there which gave the
development of art new directions. People might ask themselves, how it would
be in these technologically dominated times with New Media, where currently
a special education is obviously only is in the beginning and no
institution is currently focussed on these new formes of contemporary art
working.
Regarding this situation, it may surprise, that it is Italy where some of
the most active and influencing online publications on New Media and art
come from, to mention only these: Neural, Noema or Random.
And reagarding these conditions, it may not surprise on the other and, that
especially from Italy come some very
active netartists, even if some of them are continously under way between
Italy and USA, especially New York.
This feature would like to spotlight 20 of them. It is an exciting mixture
between allready well known and upcoming, emerging artists. Each of them
represents a fascinating new aspect in appoarching this new art form:
NetArt."

Each artist is represented with a selection of exemplary net based art
works.

These are the featured artists:

Caterina Davinio, Carla Della Beffa, Mauro Ceolin, Bugs, ego,
Isabella Bordoni, Domiziana Giordano, dlsan, Sergio Maltagliati,
Speranza Casillo, Domenico Olivero, Coniglioviola, Giocomo Verde,
Luigia Cardarelli, Avatar project, 80/81, Francesca di Gregorio
Gruppo A12, Carlo Zanni, 0100101110101101.ORG

The online exhibition is designed, created and curated by
Agricola de Cologne, curator and director of JavaMuseum.

The durance of the show is not limited,
but the "Feature" will remain online for permanent.
Further more, the show is open for any new upcoming
net based working artist from Italy.
In so far it is an ongoing project to be updated from time to time.
