The JPEG is Dead

December 8 at7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

With the arrival of interactive web-based technology this presentation questions why online art exhibitions are often reduced to a collection of static JPEG files. This session takes a deep dive into the future of online art exhibitions. Participants will be shown digital artworks that push boundaries of traditional exhibition formats. Discussion around implementation and creation of interactive and engaging digital art exhibitions will also take place and include latest tools and platforms.
