2003 Digital Art & Culture Symposium

The New York Digital Art & Culture Symposium took place in 2003 as part of our tenth anniversary celebration. It provided a forum for artists, curators and digital art historians to examine the state-of-the art of emerging digital art practice and theory. Over the past thirteen years, digital art has become a vital component of contemporary art and these panel discussions provide a valuable resource for those interested in digital art history.
