A panel featuring artists included in the net art section of the Whitney
Biennial

Participants in the panel will be the net artists whose work is presented as
part of the 2002 Whitney Biennial. Panelists will give a short presentation
of their respective work, followed by a moderated discussion amongst the
artists and with the audience. The discussion will be moderated by
Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts at the Whitney Museum and
responsible for the Biennial net art selection.

The selection of Internet-based art for the 2002 Biennial strives to give an
impression of the variety of forms that net art can take and of the multiple
themes that have emerged over the years. Among these themes are data
visualization and mapping, database aesthetics, gaming paradigms, agent
technology, community as well as nomadic devices--all of which surface in
the art works included in the 2002 Biennial selection and will be further
explored in the panel discussion.

This event is a collaboration between the Whitney Museum and the "Netart
Initiative," of which the MFA Design and Technology Department of the
Parsons School of Design is a founding member.

Sponsored by the Center for New Design at the Parsons School of Design. The
Biennial 2002 Net-based art installation is sponsored by France Telecom
North America.
