Spinning The Web
Lisa Rasmussen and Lauren Usher have published part one of a two-part interview with me on their intriguing US-based blog, Art Is Moving. The focus of our email 'discussion' was an exploration of the current and future role the internet in the art world and the degree to which it's likely to disintermediate the relationship between artist and 'audience' and create within it a closer, more communicative connection. As might be expected, I reiterated my view that the web is a liberating opportunity for young artists, who should no longer rely on the traditional commercial and institutional gallery system to shape their careers.
