In 1996, Tribe founded Rhizome, an organization that supports the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology.
The integration of rapidly evolving technology in our daily lives has influenced - and continues to redefine - artistic expression and our assumptions about the accessibility and durability of works of art. An increased ease of viewing and sharing digital art on multiple platforms can imply a level of free use that complicates an artwork’s reception and authorship. The panelists will discuss a range of issues of interest to those who make, market, consume, and seek to collect intangible art.
Presented by the students of the Art Market program at the School of Graduate Studies, Class of 2014.
When: November 12, 2013 at 7:00pm
The panel will be located at the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre on the NW corner of Seventh Avenue and 27 Street in the Fred P. Pomerantz Art and Design Center.
Free and open to the public.
