Is New Media Accepted in the Art World? Domenico Quaranta’s Media, New Media, PostMedia

Do institutions and galleries have a growing interest in New Media? Two weeks ago, I identified the art “internet bubble” at The L Magazine, a trend that’s currently giving new media the spot light. Not everyone sees new media the same way though. Domenico Quaranta, an Italian writer and curator previously best known to this blog for “Holy Fire”, a dubiously themed new media exhibition in Brussels that included only “collectible” work, being one such example. Quaranta’s followed up the 2008 exhibition by writing a whole book on the subject of New Media, — “Media, New Media, PostMedia” a core theme being that it isn’t accepted in the contemporary art world.

Continuing the discourse on how to sculpt dicks.


Ki[net]ic Reflections

Is net art as democratic as it thinks it is, and does it matter? Although Internet-based art may be more immediately “available” than your average masterwork, the viewer’s relationship to net art is still governed by principles of physical interaction. It seems we should be able to anticipate the future of net art by looking at prior artwork that relied on a similar existence and mode of interaction.

Police hold on to a Rembrandt that appeared out of nowhere and can’t be authenticated. The man who brought Koons and Murakami to the Gardens of Versailles is retiring. A personal trainer who describes himself as a “sculptor of the body” is opening up a gallery. Graffiti makers wish they could prevent their property from being mistreated and defaced.


Jonathan Jones: Hero of the West

Once upon a time, way back in 2002, Guardian arts writer Jonathan Jones wrote an admirably harsh review of Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi’s exhibition “The Desert Is Not Silent”. And holy shit, is he not going to let it go.
