International Symposium on
Curating New Media Art
Liverpool School of Art & Design and FACT Centre Liverpool
30 March - 1 April 2006

New media art is a global phenomenon: a rapidly changing and dynamic 
field of creative practice which crosses conventional categories and 
disciplinary boundaries, challenging our assumptions about art.

- How do curators engage with new media art?
- What makes a good curator of new media art?
- What can we learn from the pioneers of this field?
- What common ground exists with other disciplines?
- What does the future hold for curating new media art?

These and other issues will be explored at Art-Place-Technology. 
Speakers who are shaping the practice and theory of curating new 
media art include:
