Next Tuesday, Nov 20: Blogging and the Arts
Oh, yeah, I suppose I should mention this: Next Tuesday, I'll be hosting a Rhizome panel discussion on blogging at the arts at the New Museum's Chelsea space. As with most things Rhizome, one of the general themes of this panel will be exploring the points of contact between the two vastly different fields of fine arts and techie culture. If you're in NYC, and are into tech and the arts--or just the fine points of culture clash--you should stop by. Also, there will be lots of free drinks! (Thanks, Bob.)
Here's the press release:

*** Rhizome.org Director of Technology Francis Hwang will lead a panel discussion entitled Blogging and the Arts. The panel includes artist Kabir Carter, photoblogger and journalist David Gallagher, artist and critic Tom Moody, and artist T.Whid. The discussion will address questions such as whether blogs will change the nature of discourse in the fine arts field, and ways that artists and critics are integrating this new form of communications into their own work. ***
