Art On The Net (Art On The Net)
Since 1995, The Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts has been hosting the "Art on the Net" project promoting the Internet as a space for artistic expression. For almost a decade now, this project has been calling on artists around the world to investigate the relationship between Art, the Internet and the Society.
This summer, to celebrate the success of our "Art on the Net" project, we are going to launch a new event called "Project netarts.org." The " Project netarts.org" consists of an Internet Art exhibition, artist essays, theoretical articles, and an online forum.
The Exhibition section of the project will feature recent developments in Internet Art and is open to all forms of creative expression that use the Internet as their primary medium. The essays and articles from artists, critics, curators and other contributors, will be featured in the Writings section. The Online Forum is open to everyone who is interested in Internet Art and other hybridized forms of Digital or Media Art that use network technologies.
Although this project is primarily focused on the latest developments in the field of Internet Art, we are also very interested in considering contributions that reflect the influence of Internet Art production on the wider fields of Media-Art, Digital Art, curatorial practice, digital pedagogy, and online publishing.
The new "Project netarts.org" will be launched 1st, Nov. 2004.
