Curator Talk | I was Raised on the Internet

Omar Kholeif, Eva Respini, Pavel Pyś, and Michael Connor

Curators from three major institutions collaborating on exhibitions which focus on parallel aspects of the internet’s effect on contemporary art discuss how art and communication have developed since 1989. Each of these three exhibitions investigates the effects of the internet through research and exhibitions: Art in the Age of the Internet at ICA, Boston; The Body Electric at Walker Art Center, Minn. and I was Raised on the Internet at MCA Chicago. The panel debates how the internet has radically changed the field of art production, distribution, and reception and explores the following questions: What is the effect on our relationship to bodies, race, gender, and sexuality? How has all digital media changed the way human beings relate to each other? What can we expect from future generations?
