New York Digital Salon 10th Anniversary Celebration


From April 22-May 25, the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the New York Digital Salon will take place in Manhattan. Luminary-laden panels on 'The Artist as Programmer' and 'The Museum and the Art Gallery in the 21st Centruy' are complemented by a strapping, accompanying issue of Leonardo, and a website stocked with new essays by the likes of Lev Manovich, Christiane Paul and Benjamin Weil. The 'Artists' section of the site is especially expansive and challenging. Deepen your grasp of new media aesthetics by taking it upon yourself to figure out why Gene Youngblood's 'Expanded Cinema' made the curators' cut. Details of panels and events, which require registration, are on the site. -- Rachel Greene
