State of Art ⁄⁄

Location: online


A conversation between G.H. Hovagimyan and Mark Cooley conducted through electronic mail. Hovagimyan with Cooley about his experiences around censorship in art culture, identifying some of the taboos which tend to influence responses from potential censors (curators, board members, sponsors, politicians, and other interested parties). As well as the economics, funding and criterias around art practice, and how that shapes the context of how art is seen and presented in an art framework and what this means.

G.H. Hovagimyan is an experimental digital artist working in a variety of forms. He was one of the first artists in New York to start working with the Internet in the early nineties. His work ranges from hypertext works to digital performance art and installations. His streamed video talk shows, Art Dirt and Collider explore and document the artists of the digital art scene at the time circa 1995-2000.
