hi Johannes and CRUMB

thanks for the report on the two interesting shows where you are in Texas... there are so many questions in your post, I hardly know where to begin, so I might just re-state them for the wisdom of this crowd to comment on them ....

yes you are right, it is common, and I know of no other standard way of documenting this aspect of the exhibition other than the calendar/press listing of the 'accompanying' programme -- such links are easily lost if it is not included in catalogues or somesuch that the screen program is a _part_ of the exhibition. Does anyone on the list have any top tips for exhibition documentation?

This is an ongoing consideration, and while new media art can learn much from how performance and live art has made it into the institution of the museum over the years, I suppose we could now consider how new exhibitions of 'intermedia' art can learn from the recent histories of the exhibition of new media art. The exhibition sounds good but I'm guessing from your question that there isn't an online component to the show or the inclusion of recent new media art based on performance actions? 

> PS. I called the CAM and they tell me a catalogue of the exhibition will be forthcoming after all the live events have passed. 

Good. With pictures? with narrative descriptions such as the one you've given us of the live event you attended? With audience feedback? It seems getting things into print is still important for art history, but telling the story of the live events in book form isn't easy as many on this list could attest to.

> PS 2:  Notably, the museum incorporates happening, dance, fluxus and performance into "black visual art" thus writing a new history, yes?  

Sounds like it! Blurring of categories is usually a good thing when a show is well curated (Ref. The Robert Breer show held recently at BALTIC - an artist always understood as either a film-maker, or a sculptor, or a painter, but never as someone whose practices wove between and around different media, until now).
