This video documentation is part two 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 Open Score an annual symposium 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.” Liking and Critiquing How are the quality and texture of art criticism evolving in the digital age? This panel will address the following questions, among others: Is the expanded field of debate and art criticism—from the online platforms of magazines to viral Instagram posts—altering the boundaries of art? What problems accompany the greater immediacy that social media affords? How is this discourse shaped by platform design and its underlying mandates? How do magazines and journals operate within and speak to this new context? What voices are encouraged to speak, and which, if any, are quieted? Speakers Brian Droitcour, writer and Associate Editor, Art in America; Kimberly Drew, Founder, Black Contemporary Art, and author of @museummammy; Laura McLean-Ferris, writer and curator; and Jerry Saltz, Senior Art Critic, New York magazine Moderator Ed Halter, writer and Cofounder, Light Industry
