Abstract

This chapter addresses histories of both new media art exhibitions and non-new media exhibitions, involving installation art and site-specific art, and placing a particular emphasis on interactive and participatory art. It discusses exhibitions of new media that display new media behaviors, rather than digital versions of analog media such as photography and video, which fit more smoothly into existing art-historical categories and exhibition models. As explored in the chapter, certain “behaviors”, such as participation or interaction, might cause new media art to be placed with a firm hand in museum “education” departments, rather than in the collections, archives, or libraries from where the sheen of the historical canon might be glimpsed. The chapter explores examples of past and recent exhibitions, and examines the kinds of documentation that are now available and understood through the lens of new media art and social systems.
