New York-based New Museum recently launched tech incubator NEW INC, which, through cutting-edge programming, seeks to unify creative communities and empower individuals working in the areas of art, technology, and design. This collision of art and technology is central to the way that ArtPrize itself was conceived and runs to this day, powering the public vote and the artist-venue connection process, and influencing the way that artists make and share their work.
On October 3, NEW INC: Incubating Art and Tech, presented by CWD Real Estate, will offer a discussion of exciting new trends at the intersection of art and technology, featuring Julia Kaganskiy, executive director of NEW INC, Heather Cocoran, executive director of art and tech blog Rhizome, and artist Adam Harvey, whose work explores the uneasy relationship between technology and surveillance.
This program is accessible to members of our deaf and hard of hearing community through ASL-English (American Sign Language) interpretation. Reserved seats will be available until 15 minutes before the start of the program.
A new partnership with the Community Media Center and The Rapidian will facilitate further exploration of the 2014 Critical Discourse programming. Additional editorial coverage, radio discussions, and programming rebroadcast events will allow a wider audience to reflect on the ideas and perspectives presented throughout the week.
