"State of the Art: Digital Prints, a panel discussion in conjunction with the opening reception of DIGITAL'2000"
2000-06-28 until 2000-07-14
Art and Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI)
Staten Island, NY, USA United States of America

Digital images, no longer just experiments in Photoshop, are rapidly becoming the medium-of-choice by both fine art photographers and printmakers. Not that long ago, artists could make and view digital images on their computer screens but had no way of printing out a product suitable for collection or sale. Today, digital artists have many choices of print output methods with image permanence that surpasses that of traditional color photographs. Digital prints can be made in huge sizes, and on many types of material. Recent technological innovations in improved ink-sets and photo-quality printers have allowed fine art digital prints to share the distinction of net.art as one of the newest media in the lexicon of legitimate contemporary art (shown at museums). So new, that the Brooklyn Museums prestigious 26th National Print Biennial next year will be the first such biennial exhibition to be devoted solely to the digital print.

State of the Art: Digital Prints will examine important technical aspects that artists should know about creating long-lasting digital prints with Henry Wilhelm announcing surprising results of his recent testing that will revolutionize fine art digital prints! In addition, the panel will explore the issues that artists, museum curators, and gallery owners are dealing with today. For instance: What criteria do museum curators use to decide which department will collect a digital print, Photography or Prints and DrawingsNULL Are artists following strict copyright rules regarding appropriation of images from other print media when creating digital montageNULL How should digital images be reviewed by curators, at what resolution is realisticNULL And are artists homepages valuable for the initial review process? Why do artists not know about longevity information of the newest digital printers and ink-sets? Is this even important to collectors?
