Curator Kerry Doran has been researching and writing about internet-based art practices for years. She is currently the Director at Postmasters Gallery in New York. On episode 50 of the podcast, she stopped by to discuss the paradoxical techno-utopianism in early internet art, her recent article “Re: Contextualizing the Cyborg” for Open Space, whether or not digital tools can be emancipatory, running in Ridgewood, accidental audiences, the overspecialization of coding, skepticism versus cynicism, her transition to selling art and why it’s important for the artists she works with, writing about contemporary art history, and more. We’re sponsored this week by the ability to eat cheese in physical gallery spaces. The outro music is “Dark Steering” by Squarepusher.
