Artists and the Communications Network


Currently on view in the physical world through September 18 at the Austin Museum of Art -- and accompanied by an online exhibition -- is "Telematic Connections," a travelling exhibition curated by Steve Dietz of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. The show features a time-line tracing the evolution of creative uses of the global communications network by artists dating back to the 1920s and up to the 21st century. Major contemporary names on the roster include innovative Net artists Ken Goldberg, Victoria Vesna, and Lynn Hershman.
