Speaker: Prof. Beryl Graham, University of Sunderland
Beyond the hype about interaction, participation or relational aesthetics, many artists and designers are producing work which subtly changes systems and ways of thinking. How can curators and cultural organisations show this work in meaningful ways, so that it can reach audiences, participants or fellow hackers?
Beryl Graham is Professor of New Media Art at the University of Sunderland, and is co-founder of CRUMB resource for curators of new media art. She curated the international exhibition Serious Games for the Laing and Barbican art galleries. Her books include Digital Media Art (Heinemann 20030, Rethinking Curating: Art After New Media (MIT Press 2010 with Sarah Cook), and New Collecting: Exhibiting and Audiences (Ashgate 2014 ed.). She was a member of the AHRC-funded Research Network on Collecting New Media at Tate.
