Abstract:

  • Forming an introduction to the panel. Drawing on experience from the Walker Art Center, touring exhibitions and festivals, this presentation gives an overview of the issues for curating across the boundaries of educational, online, and physical contexts. It addresses (some of) the challenges for curating new media: classification, ghettoization, medium specificity, expectations, infrastructure, legal bugs, presentation, moving targets, participation, platforms, collaboration, collecting, popular culture.
