Blogging and the Arts

This evening is hosting the second Blogging and the Arts panel discussion at the New Museum of Contemporary Art. I'm not usually one for talks, but I think it'd be a little wrong to miss this. Blogs have the potential to radically change the fine arts community, just as they have the worlds of journalism and politics; I'm glad to finally see artists and the institutions that support them embracing (or at least acknowledging) the form. Here's the press release:

Blogging and the Arts
Tuesday, May 17, 2005, 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m.

New Museum of Contemporary Art / Chelsea
556 West 22nd Street Director of Technology Francis Hwang will lead a panel discussion on Blogging and the Arts. This panel, the second in a series hosted by, includes painter and web-artist Chris Ashley, painter Joy Garnett, artist and programmer Patrick May, and writer Liza Sabater. The discussion will address issues such as ways that artists are using blogs to distribute their own work, and the influence of blogging culture on political issues of interest to those in the arts.

Through programs such as publications, online discussion, art commissions, and archiving, it supports the creation, presentation, discussion, and preservation of contemporary art using new technologies.
