Since the start of the millennium the Internet has become a force that has permeated every aspect of culture and society. Internet-based artistic practice has gained ubiquity as a new generation has emerged that interweaves art with virtual reality. These artists directly engage with social media, online commercialism, rapidly advancing digital, and mobile technologies. Their work challenges prevailing definitions of art by extending the bounds of its audience, its cultural reach, and its integration with everyday life. This panel will explore the persistent, dynamic relationship that continues to form between art, the Internet, and emerging technologies, and will consider how current configurations may evolve in the future.

PARKER ITO @ Chateau Shatto

Moderated by contemporary art curator and writer, Courtney Malick, the panel includes Gene McHugh, author of Post-Internet: Notes on the Internet and Art 12.29.09 > 09.05.10 and head of Digital Media at the Fowler Museum, UCLA; Olivia Barrett, co-owner/director of the downtown L.A. gallery, Chateau Shatto; and artists Amalia Ulman and Jeff Baij, whose careers are geared towards digital and mediated modes of artmaking. The panelists will discuss timely issues such as: How does our reliance on the Internet as a tool change the way art is made, seen, and experienced? What new challenges does the Internet create for artists and is social media’s impact on the art world for the better or the worse? Does authenticity have a role to play within this context? How is mass engagement with the Internet positioned vis-à-vis art institutions and the art market? Join us for a public panel, curated by ArtTable’s Southern California Chapter, that explores the dynamic relationship between art and Internet technologies.
