During the 2006 College Art Association conference in Boston, Art Interactive will be hosting a unique collaborative venture in new media art. New Media Caucus (NMC), Leonardo Education Forum (LEF), and Art/Technology (AT) Boston have joined forces to present New Media/New Work on view from February 22 – 26, 2006. New Media/New Work collects a multitude of voices from the new media landscape in this brief and rare occasion.
Gathering a cross-section of cutting-edge video and new media work, the exhibition is built around four individual projection screens representing each of the participating organizations. LEF’s Technologized Bodies/Embodied Technologies is co-curated by Legier Biederman and Dave Burns and consists of work by a group of international artists that explores the intersections among visuality, embodiment, and the technological. AT Boston presents Art and Technology Boston, a video reel compiled by Phaedra Shanbaum and drawn from work created by consortium members demonstrating each local organizations involvement in New Media in the greater Boston area. Slurp!, curated by NMC member Lisa Dorin, brings together short videos that ooze, gurgle, flicker, burn, float, whirl, lick, lather and generally let it all hang out in the name of art. The fourth screen, compiled and mastered by the NMC member Gail Rubini, highlights diverse technical and thematic approaches to the medium including experimental abstractions and formal and narrative explorations.
