David Ross

The Art Musum vs. The Digital Age

Date 11/4/98

Affiliation Curator, SFMOMA, San Francisco


Wednesday's presentation will be a dialogue between David Ross and the audience, focused specifically on this topic, in an effort to identify its distinguishing qualities, aesthetics, and implications.


David Ross established his curatorial reputation with positions at museums in Syracuse, Long Beach, Berkeley's BAM, Boston, and New York's Whitney Museum. He has also taught at UCSD, SFAI, and Harvard. He is perhaps the world's foremost curator of Video Art. Ross's track record suggests that he will play a pivotal role in defining and establishing new art forms. Recently a new form has caught his attention: net art, artwork that uses the Internet as its medium. In mid-October SF MOMA unveiled its first net art exhibit at sfmoma.org.
