The twelfth annual New Media Caucus Showcase will be held during CAA 2021 via an online platform. Submissions are being accepted until 11:59 pm on December 20, 2020.

The NMC showcase is a series of rapid-fire presentations by 10 NMC members (6-minute presentations). It has proven to be an excellent forum to get to know the work of fellow new media artists and scholars in a lively atmosphere. Several spots are reserved for graduate students currently enrolled in MFA or Ph.D. programs. Due to the short presentation slots, presenters may only present one work, rather than a retrospective of their careers. 

Continuing with the success of last year, presentations will be chosen by application rather than by lottery. We ask you to submit a brief description of the project you will present, along with a relevant URL to work samples.  We also ask you to submit a brief statement outlining how your work addresses issues of diversity and relates to the NMC diversity statement (see below).

This event is free and open to the public. No CAA registration is required. 

*NMC membership is free – just sign up for the NMC mailing list here:


Presenters are chosen by application. Only members that have not participated in the showcase in the past three years are eligible.
