Session: Collecting/Exhibiting Web Culture
More and more institutions are interested in working with online art projects. This workshop will examine some of the philosophical and practical issues involved in presenting and preserving them, from different models of exhibition (commission, residency, online, site-based access, hybrid, portal, collaboration) to the collapsing differences between archiving and collecting work that is "original" in the digital format to issues of scope and definition for networked-based and often ephemeral work to the balancing of artistic intent with public accessibility to the pragmatics of economics and emulators, sustainability and advisability.
