Collaboration in New Media Art 


Does collaboration constitute compromise, act as a catalyst, or infer complexity? There has been much debate in recent times around collaboration in new media art practice. 

Amanda McDonald Crowley, Executive Director of EYEBEAM art and technology center in New York, will raise questions, deliberate on the issues, and propose some answers:
Does collaboration necessitate compromise? 
Does it mirror the practice of artists working in this field?
Are new media practitioners even artists? 
What is the role of the curator in a collaborative cultural endeavor?

Amanda McDonald Crowley is the Executive Director of Eyebeam art and technology center in New York. In 2005 Amanda relocated from her native Australia where she had been based while working nationally, as well as in Europe and Asia, as an arts producer, facilitator, researcher and curator specializing in creating new media and contemporary art programs that encourage cross disciplinary practice, collaboration and exchange. Positions she has held include serving as the Executive Producer of the 2004 International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA2004), developing the event from concept to major conferences, exhibitions, performances, concerts and site specific installations on a ferry in the Baltic Sea and locations in Estonia and Finland; Associate Director for Adelaide Festival 2002; and Director of the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT), an organization with a national brief to foster links between the arts, sciences and new technology.

Open House Wednesdays are FREE and supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

LOCATION ONE is a not-for-profit organization devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology. We invite artists from different disciplines and from different countries to work in our studios. We ask them to experiment with the new technologies of artistic creation, interaction and delivery. We urge them to collaborate in creating new works and give them virtual Internet spaces and physical gallery space to exhibit the results. Our goals are to foster the creation of new work, new forms of expression, and new capabilities in artists, and to advance new awareness in all those we reach.
