Peer Book Report: Rethinking Curating: Art After New Media by Beryl Graham and Sarah Cook




Rethinking Curating: Art After New Media
by Beryl Graham and Sarah Cook New Media Art and Design encompasses so much of the content that artists are creating today from fine artists to designers. How people make art is rapidly changing, so why wouldn't the spaces in which we view it change as well? Rethinking Curating begins with an analysis of the New Media art form; how it started up and how it has changed. Part II explains the contexts, practices and processes of curating. Finally, Part III is dedicated to the author's conclusions bringing the two previous sections together. There are many examples dispersed throughout the body of the book, which provides good context to the material being discussed. This book is great for anyone involved in the curation processes, as well as the digital artists creating the works. In this book you'll find sections about:

  • Art After New Media: Histories, Theories and Behaviors
  • The Art Formerly Known as new Media
  • Space and Materiality
  • Rethinking Curating: Contexts, Practices and Processes
  • Curating in an Art Museum
  • Other modes of collaboration
