|Abstract:||In a global digital culture, where the materials and techniques of new media are widely available and accessible to a growing proportion of the population, many of the most profound challenges for contemporary art push well beyond the MCA/NMA debate. Millions and millions of people around the world participate in sociable media, and have the ability to produce and share with millions and millions of other people their own texts, images, sound recordings, videos and GPS traces. A YouTube video, like Daft Hands, can delight and amaze 45 million viewers (Feb. 2010), spawning its own subculture of celebrities, masterpieces, and remixers. In this context what are the roles of the artist, the curator, and the critic? Regardless of medium what do professional artists and theorists have to offer that is special, that adds value and insight to this dynamic, collective, creative culture?|
