<nettime> Whitney Museum Director's Interview for CYBERART99 in NYC...

"CYBERART99 Symposium"
May 9th, 10 - 5pm
The Great Hall 
Cooper Union, NYC
7 E. 7th St. @ 3rd Avenue
($20 at the door)

a taste of the event.... 

Maxwell L. Anderson, director of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New
York, has been a leader in applying new technologies to museums. He
launched the Art Museum Network and is founding chairman of the Art Museum
Image Consortium.  For "The American Century: Art & Culture 1900-2000," a
landmark retrospective opening at the Whitney on April 23, 1999, he is
co-producing the exhibition's ambitious online extension. 

Mr. Anderson spoke recently with Matthew Mirapaul, "arts@large" columnist
for The New York Times on the Web, about Internet-based creative works and
the challenges their ever-evolving content, wide accessibility and infinite
reproducibility present to the art world's traditional economic model.  As
an alternative, some are proposing a "pay per view" scenario, in which
electronic payments of "micro-cash" would be made to the artist whenever a
viewer accesses a work. 

For the Interview...
CYBERART99 is the first part of a 3-year initiative to create new support
models for web-based art, our century's new "virtual" artform.  The
pay-per-view model represents only one of the many controversial proposals
that will be discussed. Please come and be a part of the solution. 

This event is a co-production of Art & Science Collaborations, Inc.(ASCI)
and The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.
