Node Center's Online Program offers those interested in contemporary 
art practices the opportunity to extend their experience in an 
internationally oriented e-learning program.

Our Virtual Learning Environment facilitates rich interaction through 
multimedia material, weekly video-conferences, practical exercises 
and personal feedback from the lecturers.


This course examines the practical and successful strategies of 
social networking for professionals in the art world. Artists, 
curators and gallerists in the past decade have introduced social 
networking as a necessary tool for increasing global visibility as 
well as for community outreach. Institutions such as the Sculpture 
Center or New Museum have utilized sites like Tumblr or Facebook to 
increase their base significantly. For instance, by getting featured 
on the Tumblr art directory galleries like LVL3 in Chicago and 
REFERENCE Art Gallery in Richmond, Virginia have garnered over 
100,000 online followers each despite their relatively remote 
locations. As the world heads further towards globalization, social 
networking platforms have become an essential aspect within the 
artistic community.

Participants in the course will learn successful strategies on 
maintaining an online platform, as well as how to boost public 
interest and which content can bring in the best audiences. They will 
create a blog as well as a Facebook page and design and implement a 
strategy to utilize them within their professional practice. At the 
completion of the course, participants will have an increased 
knowledge of not only social networking, but it's history, how to 
take advantage of it and most importantly how to attain a large 
digital footprint.
