Lauren Cornell Chats It Up At The Moca
Lauren Cornell was the featured speaker for an interactive discussion in the Museum Of Contemporary Art (MOCA) by MOONLIGHT Spotlight series. She is the Adjunct Curator at the New Museum and executive director of Rhizome , the New Museum’s online platform. Rhizome, promotes and contextualizes emerging artistic practices that engage technology. Through open platforms for exchange and collaboration, the website serves to encourage and expand communities around these practices and draws attention to the complex interrelationships between technology, art and culture. Ms. Cornell curated the current exhibition Free, which explores the role of the internet as a cultural catalyst, and co-curated The Generational: Younger Than Jesus, the New Museum’s inaugural 2007 exhibition Unmonumental and a solo show of works by the web art group Young-Hae Change Heavy Industries.
