[Nettime-bold] <nettime> SF Webby Award Symposium--anyone in bay area going?


SFMOMA Webby Prize Symposium

On Saturday, May 13, from 1:00 to 5:30 p.m., SFMOMA will present an international symposium on online art in the Museum’s Phyllis Wattis Theater. SFMOMA Webby 2000 will bring together an international group of new media curators and web artists, including finalists and winners of the SFMOMA Webby Prize, to discuss the state of online art. The first section, The Artist, the Audience, the Museum and the Gallery in a World of Networked Art, will consider the human and institutional relationships inherent in a networked art environment, focusing on how the network creates a fundamentally new set of conditions linking art makers with audiences. Panelists include jurors Aaron Betsky, Benjamin Weil, and John Weber, Web designer Erik Adigard, and Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn, Webby Prize winners.

The second section, The Artwork in the Age of Online Communication, will look at specific art works created to exist online and examine their structures and nature. Webby finalists and winners will show a range of projects and jurors will offer commentary. Panel 1: Machiko Kusahara; Gary Hill; Beth Stryker and Sawad Brooks, Webby Prize finalists; Young-hae Chang, Webby Prize Honorable Mention; Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Webby Prize Honorable Mention. Panel 2: Benjamin Weil; Femke Wolting; Aaron Betsky; Marc Lafia, Webby Prize finalist; Ichiro Aikawa, Webby Prize Honorable Mention; and David Karam, web designer
