Transformation Digital Art symposium 2019 | 21 & 22 March 2019 | LIMA Amsterdam

LIMA is proud to announce the dates for Transformation Digital Art Symposium 2019 on March 21 and 22, 2019. Transformation Digital Art symposium is designed as an opportunity to share best practices concerning both artist-led and institutional strategies geared towards the future presentation of born-digital and software-based art. Inviting international participants from an array of professional backgrounds, the symposium continues in the tradition of the 2016, 2017 and 2018 editions but continues to push further, questioning what strategies could be developed in order to take artworks of an inherently digital, performative and processual nature into the future. In two days with lectures, workshops and panels LIMA wants to share knowledge on this complex topic. Through collaboration with artists, museums, archival professionals, scholars and collections, the symposium responds to the question: What new strategies can we develop in order for born-digital art to become future proof?

We are pleased to announce the first names of speakers that will contribute to the symposium: Jennifer Helia DeFelice (Vašulka Kitchen Brno), Adam Lockhart (University of Dundee), Willem van Weelden (Gerrit Rietveld Academie), Glenn Wharton (New York University) and Emile Zile (Artist).
