This video documentation is part four of a four part series from a symposium that took place on January 30, 2016 at the New Museum. The New Museum and Rhizome jointly inaugurate an annual symposium titled "Open Score" that will explore the state of art and technology today. Convening luminary artists, curators, researchers, and writers to discuss how technology is transforming culture, the first edition of "Open Score" will consider how artists are responding to new conditions of surveillance and hypervisibility; how social media’s mass creativity interfaces with branding and identity for individual artists; how the quality and texture of art criticism is evolving in a digital age; and what the future of internet art might be in light of a broader assimilation of digital technologies. Supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, "Open Score: Art and Technology 2016" will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the groundbreaking initiative Experiments in Art and Technology. The conference’s title is taken from Rauschenberg’s live performance Open Score during one of E.A.T.’s most iconic events, “9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering.” Panel 4: The Future of Internet Art Over the course of two decades, the nascent field of internet-based practice has exploded into the mainstream and become ubiquitous. The internet is no longer a new medium but a mass medium that permeates every aspect of culture and society internationally. In light of this, what is the future for the field of art engaged with the internet? Will it continue to offer artists the opportunity to connect with publics directly, without relying on art institutions? How will the history of internet art continue to inform its future, given the problems of creating digital social memory? How will the web’s increased competition from locked-down applications change digital cultural production and distribution? What has internet art’s embrace by the mainstream of contemporary art and popular culture done to its form and visibility? Will there be such a thing as internet art ten years from now, or will all art created before the internet, as the artist Oliver Laric has suggested, simply be “pre-internet art”? Speakers Constant Dullaart, artist and winner of the Rhizome Prix Net Art; Shawné Michaelain Holloway, artist; Peter Russo, Director, Triple Canopy; and Colin Self, artist Moderator Michael Connor, Artistic Director, Rhizome
