For the upcoming session we have invited Karen Archey, independent curator and writer; Lauren Cornell, Curator, New Museum; Lev Manovich, Professor, Computer Science, The Graduate Center, City University of New York; and Artie Vierkant, artist, to lead a discussion about “post-Internet” art and how it relates to new forms of image-making, dissemination, networking, and branding aesthetics. Some of the questions we will ask include: How do you define post-Internet art? How do post-Internet artistic strategies affect how we think about, receive, and participate in image production and distribution today? What's changed in the field of image making since “post-Internet” emerged as a term in the last decade? This session will address the ways in which expanded ideas about the photographic medium and the circulation of images resonate in the 21st century.
This event is invitation-only, but we are very pleased to present a live stream of the forum, which will allow remote friends and colleagues to participate in the conversation.
Cofounded by curators Roxana Marcoci and Eva Respini on February 16, 2010, and conceived as an experimental platform for free-form critical discussions, MoMA’s forums on contemporary photography are designed to encourage debate about the perspectives and scope of still and moving images and other forms of picture-making among leading artists, curators, and theorists in the field. The creative process of today is not solitary but dynamic, evolving from countless partnerships. These forums offer an intellectual milieu that values the scholarly reassessment of pivotal ideas in art, innovative practices, and complex and competing visions of modern and contemporary art.
Roxana Marcoci, Senior Curator, Department of Photography, begins each session with an introduction to the topic, providing context for the conversation. Four to seven featured speakers then present for five to 10 minutes each. The presentations are followed by a probing, critical Q&A session and a moderated discussion with all the guests.
