Media at MoMA.

I'm closing some tabs, so forgive the slightly out-of-date news here, but there's some interesting stuff afoot at The Museum of Modern Art in NYC: a new "Media" curatorial department. According to the press release, Klaus Biesenbach, "a curator in the Museum's department of Film and Media and Chief Curator at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center", will be heading the new department, which will "focus on contemporary art that reflects recent and current artistic practice, including moving image installations, exhibitions, and presentations of soun- and time-based works that are made for an presented in a gallery setting". Museum Director Glenn D. Lowry is quoted in the release as saying, "The creation of a new department at MoMA devoted exclusively to media-based art acknowledges the growing importance of new technologies in contemporary artistic expression." Neat.
