Hello CRUMB list

a note that a big team from CRUMB will be in Sydney for ISEA this weekend and all of next week and would love to meet up and talk about projects.

We are hosting two panels at the ISEA conference and will make documentation of them available on the CRUMB website as per usual, as well as likely tweet about it on our individual accounts. More on that soon. Meantime here are the listings so you can add them to your plans:


Panel 1:
Learning from the CRUMB Method over a cup of tea: reflections on creating and exhibiting digital arts

Wednesday 12 June 2013
1:15PM - 2:45PM

New Law School Lecture Theatre 106
New Law School Building, Eastern Avenue, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia

Panelists:

Sarah Cook: CRUMB/University of Sunderland, UK (Chair)

Dominic Smith: Pixel Palace, Tyneside Cinema/ University of Sunderland, UK

Marialaura Ghidini: University of Sunderland, UK

Suzy O’Hara: University of Sunderland, UK

Victoria Bradbury: University of Sunderland, UK

Graham Harwood: Goldsmiths/University of Sunderland, UK

Roddy Hunter: York St John University/University of Sunderland, UK

Abstract:

Based on the research undertaken at CRUMB<http://www.crumbweb.org/>, the online resource for curators of media arts, this panel gathers together knowledge from different experiences of producing and presenting digital arts, from the perspectives of both curators/producers and artists. In response to ISEA2013’s theme, ‘Resistance is Futile’, this panel will share their work concerning how art allows us to imaginatively experience and critically reflect on the implications of new technologies and digital media in our everyday lives, from databases to information visualisation to how we act in a social network. The invited panelists work across art, design, technology and scientific collaborations, and are undertaking or have completed PhDs with the University of Sunderland in relation to the CRUMB research unit. Digital media projects including apps, streaming radio, responsive designed objects in gallery spaces, and participatory experiences in public spaces will be addressed, alongside questions concerning audience engagement, and new platforms for the distribution of work.


Panel 2:
Curating and Collecting the New – Resistance is Futile (panel)

Thursday 13 June 2013
1:00PM - 2:30PM

New Law School Lecture Theatre 026
New Law School Building, Eastern Avenue, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia

Panelists:

Sarah Cook: University of Sunderland, UK (Chair)

Vince Dziekan: Monash University, Australia (Chair)

Amanda Slack-Smith: Queensland Art Gallery/GOMA, Australia

Keir Winesmith: Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia

Angelina Russo: Museum 3, Melbourne, Australia

Lubi Thomas: Digital Media, Queensland University of Technology, Australia

Abstract:

Based on the research of the co-chairs, the intention of the panel is to precipitate critical reflection on wider issues affecting contemporary art curatorship in response to ISEA2013’s theme, ‘Resistance is Futile’. In 2012 Claire Bishop was resoundingly criticised by the media arts field for her article, published in ArtForum, on the question of why the contemporary art scene has ignored society’s larger digital transformation. Critics lamented that Bishop had deliberately disregarded, as part of her argument, the ever-expanding field of arts practice that engages the digital, as something separate. As new media art and digital arts are already in museum collections from Taichung to Preston, this resistance to acknowledging its place within the art world, and its further collection and historicisation, seems futile. In contradiction to Bishop’s position, it is now possible to examine the subtleties of how collected new media and digital art works are exhibited, interpreted and contextualised as part of the wider field of contemporary arts. Festivals, which famously allow for the latest or newest work-in-progress, play a strong role in museums acquiring artworks, many of which are first shown in festival exhibitions.

Therefore, this panel will share knowledge concerning contemporary curatorship; the invited panellists work across the contemporary arts, including festivals, museums and collections. They will discuss a range of curatorial issues where the qualities of new media, electronic and digital arts can be seen to continue to challenge museums as a result of the character and nature of their associated practices. Institutional functions including communications, interpretation, audience engagement and access will be discussed, including issues of creation, presentation, participation and consumption, i.e.: designing exhibition spaces as mediated environments; preserving media art histories; the expansion of curating platforms, including new modes of content curating, collaboration with artists and publics, social media and curatorial approaches that support expanded publication in a global context.


Hope to see you.
Please do use this list for discussion of your feedback and thoughts on ISEA2013.

Sarah
