The definition of new and emerging technologies constantly shifts with time. New media arts appear when contemporary artists choose to use the latest media and technology as a medium of their work. New media introduces a new way to create and to present, re-defining the relationship between the artist, the artwork, and the viewer. The fast development of the internet also changes people’s conception of time and space. In this context, new media arts become ever-changing with complex modes of expression.
In the second episode of 2019/20 “Arts Administrator 101 Series”, Ms. Joel Kwong, an experienced media arts curator and the Programme Director of Microwave International New Media Arts Festival, will introduce us to the evolution of new media arts, local media arts landscape and share her experience on curating and programming with us.
