Talk: Media Art beyond the Digital Divide
with Charissa Terranova, Tim Goossens, Julia Kaganskiy and Aja Martin

A FREE event at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

Art critic Claire Bishop identified a perceived division in the art world in her 2012 essay, ‘Digital Divide’. She argued that “new media art…rarely overlaps with the mainstream art world” because of its challenge to the marketplace and its seeming lack of criticality. Its often dematerialized condition makes it difficult to collect and new media artists, in her words, “rarely confront the question of what it means to think, see, and filter affect through the digital”.

Aurora hosts Charissa Terranova in discussion with Aurora Guest Curators Tim Goossens, Julia Kaganskiy and Aja Martin around media art’s seamless position within contemporary art. Join us as we tease out connections and continuities, rather than fractures and divisions, within the horizon of art-sci-tech hybridity.
