Art that plugs in: collecting new media

In this 26-minute presentation, gallery owner Theo Downes-Le Guin discusses how collectors incorporate new media – artworks that are connected or computational – into their lives. The talk is structured around themes emerging from interviews with collectors, curators and artists: how we define new media art; how we find and evaluate it; and how we display and live with it, both in the present and over the works' lifetime.

This information was originally presented on September 26, 2015 in a talk at Upfor about collecting new media art. This event was part of the Symposium on Art Collecting coordinated and sponsored by the Portland Art Dealers Association (PADA).
