The Digital Arts Division of the WSOA will be showing a Special Project on Internet Art at the 2009 Joburg Art Fair.
Over the last while I’ve been putting together a selection of online artworks from the Global South. I did this in collaboration with the Upgrade International Network.
The project began as an exploration to uncover South African artists using online media and grew from there. The selection now boasts a broad range of works covering the years 2000 to presents and representing artist working in or about; South America, Asia and Africa. It is not a themed selection and covers a broad range of genre from blogging to software art.
The selection will be presented at the Joburg Art Fair as one of twelve “special projects” that feature alternative programming at a mostly commercially orientated fair.
The selection however is online and can be viewed here: http://jafnetart.digitalarts.wits.ac.za
The Joburg Art Fair starts next Friday the 3rd of April and runs through to Sunday the 5th at the Sandton Convention Centre in
