New media art is a global phenomenon: a rapidly changing and dynamic 
field of creative practice which crosses conventional categories and 
disciplinary boundaries, challenging our assumptions about art.

- How do curators engage with new media art?
- What makes a good curator of new media art?
- What can we learn from the pioneers of this field?
- What does the future hold for curating new media art?
- What common ground exists with other disciplines?

These and other issues will be explored at Art-Place-Technology. 
Speakers who are shaping the practice and theory of curating new media 
art include:

Inke Arns, Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund.
Sarah Cook, CRUMB, University of Sunderland
Pierre-Yves Desaive, Fine Arts Museum of Belgium, Brussels
Paul Domela, Liverpool Biennial
Lina Dzuverovic, Electra, London

Art-Place-Technology will look at historical and current projects by 
some of the world's leading curators of new media art, and discuss how 
curating new media art creates interfaces with the art world, museum 
culture, media, publishing and academia. The symposium also includes a 
performance by LoVid, and a curator's tour of the exhibition "Howlin' 
Wolf" by Mark Lewis at FACT.
