This article is about streaming art over the internet using Skype and Twitter to have multiple people experience an exhibition in real-time. People can interact with it from around the world. The author also speaks of a new art movement that many artists are starting to cling to. Art for art’s sake, or social media popularity?
‘Unlike traditional performance art, where artist and audience are present in the space together, this approach to performance allows audiences to connect with the work remotely’
I think this idea is interesting because it can promote art to a much bigger audience. However I also believe that it is dependent on the receiver too. Meaning, it depends what type of monitor or display the person is using at home. I can understand where these artists are going, but it is not the same viewing an exhibition online versus seeing it in real life.
