This video documentation is part one 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.” Opening Remarks Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, the New Museum Introduction to First Session Michael Connor, Artistic Director, Rhizome, and Lauren Cornell, Curator and Associate Director, Technology Initiatives, the New Museum Panel 1: Generation You The rise of web 2.0 in the mid-2000s promised to democratize culture by putting individual participation center stage. A decade later, we have a more thorough grasp of the specific kind of self-expression that social media offers. On the one hand, it is limiting and restrictive: the users get little, while the platform reaps the benefits of their labor. On the other, it retains the ability to challenge prevailing cultural hierarchies and to facilitate the performance of new kinds of subjectivity. This panel will address a number of questions, including: How has social media influenced art production and remapped its boundaries and power structures? How do artists navigate pressures of commercialization and self-branding? And, what is the status of authenticity amid pervasive performance and self-branding? Speakers Jacob Ciocci, artist; Simon Denny, artist; Juliana Huxtable, artist; and Cathy Park Hong, poet Moderator Andrew Durbin, poet and writer
