Sarah Cook, New Media Curator
Tuesday, November 23, 2004
Sarah Cook is the co-editor of CRUMB (www.crumbweb.org) and post-doctoral curator and researcher at the University of Sunderland and BALTIC, the Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK. She wrote her Ph.D. dissertation (2004) on the theory and practice of curating new media art, looking at case studies of her own work, artist-led initiatives, and projects at the National Gallery of Canada, the Walker Art Center, and the Tate Galleries.
Sarah has organized exhibitions, commissioned new media art, and managed educational projects for BALTIC, the Bellevue Art Museum (Seattle), the Walker Art Center, the Reg Vardy Gallery (Sunderland), Locus+ (Newcastle), and the National Gallery of Canada. She is currently curating an exhibition on re-enactment and collaborative art practice for FACT (Liverpool), developing a framework for a ‘Season of Media Arts’ in London (SMAL), and is a researcher in the Faculty of Taxonomy at the University of Openess (www.twenteenthcentury.com/uo).
She will speak about CRUMB and the experience of co-curating the international touring exhibition Database Imaginary (http://databaseimaginary.banff.org), which opened November 14 at the Walter Phillips Gallery at the Banff Center in Alberta, Canada.
This “Conversation” is free and open to the public.
