A twice-monthly newsletter about artnetweb


Greetings from artnetweb:

We're pleased to announce PORT, an exhibition of networked
digital worlds on the Internet organized by artnetweb for the
MIT List Visual Arts Center, January 25 through March 29, 1997.

PORT will present scheduled time-based Internet projects by
individuals and groups projected into the Reference Gallery space
at the List Center that will also be accessible over the
Internet using a variety of technologies. PORT will run concurrently
with an installation by Joseph Kosuth in the adjoining main gallery

We see this not only as an opportunity to showcase artists
experimenting with new forms and ideas but also as a laboratory for
the development of models for future exhibitions. A Web site has been
created to provide information and to document the exhibition process.

The PORT Web site URL is:

The PORT-MIT listserv has been set up to discuss the planning
process and to identify potential participants in the exhibit. It 
is a moderated  discussion list open to all who are interested. To
