For the fourth installment of Art Voices, our collaborative content project with Red Bull Arts, we’re exploring the theme of New Media. In this era of expanded media, digital worlds can be just as, or more, important than physical worlds. We are now continuously confronted with new avenues of creation and discovery through digital, social, and virtual spaces.
The art world has a unique part in cultivating the future of new media as both a medium to be manipulated, a tool to be leveraged, and a place to create communities. We’ve distilled these ideas down into two questions that assess how a diverse, creative field think about the future of new media:
Tech innovations and advancements move increasingly fast. How do we, either as creatives or professionals, play a part in supporting new media advancements in relation to the arts?
For many artists, galleries and museums the followers digitally are exponentially higher and their identity less known than participants in the art community locally. How do we reach this new audience for culture and how do we bring them into a place of exchange?
