1993 – 2008: Fifteen Years of Digital Art

2008 marks the 15th anniversary of the New York Digital Salon. Started in 1993 to provide an annual venue for digital art in New York City, the salon continues to be an advocate for using digital tools and technology to create art. As digital art becomes an ever-growing part of the contemporary art landscape, our mission is constantly evolving. Our goal of gaining exposure for digital art in New York City museums and galleries has been attained. While our primary efforts over the past fifteen years have been involved with organizing exhibitions, events, panel discussions and public lectures, we have decided to mark our anniversary by revamping our website into a comprehensive archive of our past exhibitions and activities, and to make it an online digital art resource. We will continue to present summer exhibitions in our 21 St. gallery, and keep the New York Digital Salon Touring Program alive, through exhibitions, events and public lectures in the United States and abroad. To date, the New York Digital Salon has been to Canada, Canary Islands, China, England, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Portugal and Spain. As we look forward, we see a new generation of artists who are growing up digitally literate. Their creative work will help define the future of contemporary art.
