To coincide with the opening of 2004, ACMI is partnering with -empyre-, an Australian-based online media arts discussion list that collaborates with institutions and festivals to produce dynamic online forums for physically located events. Throughout the month of June, we invite you to join online discussions on emergent ideas and issues in contemporary art practice.
The forums will feature 26 invited guests - artists, collectives, curators, theorists, and information professionals working at the leading edge of contemporary practice. Over four distinctly themed weeks discussions will focus on the form, content and context of the diverse artforms which we are producing today, inclusive of painting, performance, television and print media, data capture, software art, tactical media, game modification, net.radio, machinima, mobile GPRS work, and video.
To read or join in the discussions, go to the -empyre- mailing list site at http://www.subtle.net/empyre
