Perpetual Art Machine Open Artist Roundtable

We welcome everyone to come and participate in the dialogue.

Open Artist Roundtable
"Video art in the age of the internet"
Thursday September 6, 2007, 8:00-9:30pm

Broadcasting LIVE on

The [PAM] founders will be hosting an open roundtable discussion on September 6th to analyze the current state and future of the medium of video art and the emergence of new artistic communities that question the authority and connoisseurship of traditional systems of 20th century art.
What is the role and future of video art in this very exciting time? What are the current transformations in modes of creation and distribution of video art in the early 21st century? The possibilities seem endless as open source and creative commons communities thrive, allowing for projects like [PAM] to be made possible.

The Institute for Electronic Arts
Founded in 1997 within Alfred University, the Institute is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support a dialogue between the arts and sciences leading to the creation of new works and ideas. The IEA hosts an Artist In Residence program, offering artists, scientists and scholars opportunities to experiment with emerging technologies in the creation of new art forms and processes of production. The IEA actively supports the expanding community of contemporary artists who use electronic and digital strategies as an integral part of their (often cross-disciplinary) art practice through workshops, diverse publication opportunities, and national and international conferences, performances and exhibitions. The IEA is generously supported by NYSCA.

The Chelsea Art Museum
Home of the Miotte Foundation, is committed to an exploration of “art within a context.” This approach favors a program of exhibitions, which reflect contemporary human experience across a broad spectrum of cultural, social, environmental and geographical contexts. CAM’s exhibitions, each supported by a rich series of related cultural events and educational programs, seek to support in both its artists and audiences a sense of creativity, community and cultural exchange. Co-founder and president, Dorothea Keeser, describes CAM’s curatorial vision as, “a commitment to art as a living entity which reacts and interacts with us and changes the way one continues to live one’s daily life ”.
