CRN: 4239

Credits: 3

This course gives an overview of curatorial models for digital art, ranging from approaches to online exhibitions to models for presenting (networked) digital art in indoor spaces such as museums and galleries, at festivals or in outdoor spaces. The curation of digital art is now commonly understood as an engagement with a variety of aspects of the production, presentation, and reception of the work of art. Through weekly case studies and readings, students engage with challenges of and best practices for the presentation of digital art in various contexts; audience engagement and educational materials; organizational structures and funding; as well as exhibition documentation. The evolution of digital art practice as well as the exhibition history of digital art and changes that have occurred in presenting work throughout the decades will also be discussed.

Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
