Showing it: May theme of the month
Showing it: As curators, we get to show new media art to people. How
do we show it? How do artists ensure it gets seen as it should be?
Big dark rooms? Squashy lounges? White boxes? Seamlessly with 'old
media'? Purely on-line? Computers on desks? Group shows rubbing
along, or singular experiences?
We'd like to discuss examples of installation design tactics which
have worked well in particular contexts, and, as installation shots
rarely feature on museum/gallery web sites, we're starting to gather
good clear visual materials for the CRUMB site (curators with
examples they'd be willing to make public should contact Beryl or
Sarah directly, as images may be too big for the List).
Invited respondents: Matt Locke, Michelle Hirschhorn, Chris Byrne,
Peter Ride, Giles Lane.
Baltic Seminar special guests.
P.S. On May 10th-12th, CRUMB is involved in the seminar 'Curating New
Media' <http://www.newmedia.sunderland.ac.uk/balticseminar/>. The
event, like past Baltic Seminars, is an invitation event, but those
who aren't there can participate via this discussion list. A series
of "Soap Box Moments" during the seminar will highlight 'issues
arising' and will be discussed both on and off-list.
