UNSW Art & Design Research Forum and UNSW Galleries presents the panel, 'The Practice of New Media Art', unpacking perspectives on the art form. Media art practices, both individual and collective, frequently overlap with other aspects of art theory, curation, and exhibition. Innovation, accident and crisis frequently define the perceptible qualities of media art. Media artists regularly negotiate the limits of computer-processing power and data storage, causing works to be lost and overwritten, often leaving little archival information. 

The panel includes leading practitioners Professor Paul Thomas, Professor Mari Velonaki, Dr Alex Davies, with special guest speaker Professor Sean Cubitt. Together they will explore achievements, failures, expectations, demands and dreams for art practices under the title of New Media Art. 

WHEN: FRIDAY 27 MARCH 2020
WHERE: UNSW GALLERIES
ADDRESS: CNR OF OXFORD ST & GREENS RD, PADDINGTON NSW 2021
