Some argue that these devices contributed to a new kind of observer in the 1840s (Crary), or that they are responsible for the rupture of…

CFP, Conference Session: New Aesthetics and the Postdigital, Their Effect on Contemporary Art

CFP: New Aesthetics and the Postdigital, Their Effect on Contemporary Art.

Regardless of…

CFP: The Arts and New Technologies (Greenwich, CT; June 19, 2016)

The Bruce Museum welcomes submissions for its second annual graduate student symposium, this year organized in conjunction with the exhibition Electric Paris.
