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.
