"From Black Boxes to Open Systems” is a new knowledge-sharing initiative. Through events, articles, and a forthcoming website, the project aims to support artists and art organizations to develop a better understanding of the concepts, skills, and infrastructure necessary for the exhibition, collection, and stewardship of born-digital art of all kinds.
In this illustrated talk, Rhizome’s Artistic Director Michael Connor will discuss approaches to curating online exhibitions, drawing on historical and contemporary examples. He will argue that online exhibitions are not just a means of promoting or sharing work that would otherwise be seen in a physical gallery, but a diverse set of cultural practices that are both connected to and distinct from traditional exhibition.
“From Black Boxes to Open Systems” was made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
