<nettime> ada'web/Walker Art Center

Gallery 9/Walker Art Center announces the formation of a Digital Arts
Study Collection and the acquisition of the complete archives of the
pioneering Web site ada'web, a leading site for the creation and
presentation of Web-specific artworks by such artists as Doug Aitken,
Jenny Holzer, General Idea, jodi, Antonio Muntadas, Vivian Selbo, Laura
Trippi, Lawrence Weiner, and many others. The acquisition is made possible
through a contribution by America Online. Essays by ada'web co-founder and
curator Benjamin Weil, art critic Robert Atkins, and Andrea Scott have
also been commissioned as has a new work, "The Unreliable Archivist," by
Janet Cohen, Keith Frank, and Jon Ippolito, which comments playfully on
archiving new media in general and ada'web in particular.
