Kathy Brew

Kathy Brew's hybrid career spans the realms of media and contemporary art. Since 1997, she has been Director of Thundergulch, the new media arts initiative of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council that seeks to provide new forms of interaction between artists, audiences, and new technologies. She currently serves on: the Mayor's New Media Subcommittee on Digital Arts and Culture; the Steering Committee/Board of Advisors of New York New Media Association's Art and Culture Special Interest Group; and a three-year term as a panelist for the New York State Council on the Art's Electronic Media and Film program.

She has recently written for an upcoming book to be published by MIT Press on women, art, and technology; and has published many articles on art and media in several publications over the years. This past fall she taught in SVA's MFA Computer Arts department -- a class entitled Contemporary Voices, that exposed students to the work of artists working with new technologies through guest lectures and site visits, both online and in physical space.

She is also an independent video producer, and has worked on many award-winning films, and has recently won two Emmy awards for Outstanding Fine Arts programming. Most recently she co-produced a half-hour video that includes artists and scientists responding to the biotechnology revolution (produced in association with an art exhibition -- www.geneart.org) which was broadcast on WNET/Thirteen's Metro Arts in January 2001 and will be presented at the International Festival of Art on Film in Montreal in March 2001. Also in March, she will be on a panel about Electronic Art at the Southwest By Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas.
