New website for NZ's digital artists
22 Nov 2011
The Aotearoa Digital Arts (ADA) Network, a national research network for digital and media arts launches its new website:
The new site highlights the range of projects undertaken by the ADA Network, making the work of artists associated with ADA available online. Gathering together artworks, discussion and documentation, the new site extends ADA’s reach beyond the community who meet through the ADA Network’s events and email list.
The symposium page chronicles the ADA Trust’s forums for physical discussion and networking, documenting talks and workshops with prominent national and international artists. Exploring the artbase showcases the scope of artworks created by ADA members. ADA curates and commissions artwork, exhibitions, events and publications; these are documented in projects. Key themes, issues in digital and media arts, reviews and reflection may be researched through the library.
Established in 2003, the Aotearoa Digital Arts (ADA) Network researches the expanded field of media, new media, electronic and digital art. The ADA Network includes artists, curators, critics and educators. ADA develops public understanding of digital art through its online forum, through publications and exhibitions, by touring artists and theorists, and by holding master classes and symposia.
