Saturday, November 19 - Rose Auditorium - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Artworldbuilding is a symposium to consider new organizations and institutional changes prompted by blockchain and Web3. Two 40-minute panel conversations will structure the event: the first will approach these topics from the perspective of new institutional formations spawned through decentralized technology, and the second panel will discuss adaptations by legacy organizations to these new technologies. The first panel, Spawning, will be introduced and moderated by Sarah Friend, and the second panel, Adapting, will be introduced and moderated by João Enxuto. Both are currently co-teaching a course in the Cooper Union School of Art on art and blockchain. A topic of consideration for both panels will be the potential uses of blockchain technologies in current arts higher education.
The event is free and open to the public.
