Media Art is a controversial term that identifies manifold artistic experimentations that refer to the use of media technologies as objects and/or as a subject of investigation. The larger part of this field developed independently from the usual art circuits, proliferating in contexts like festivals, research centers, academic institutions, but also on the Internet, through communities, mailing lists, and social networks. The classical institutions of art have for a long time now recognized and hosted some of the emerging forms that traditionally belong to Media Art, however, they also demonstrated suspicion and distance which limited the possible integration and understanding ...

In this episode of “Criticism in Conversation”, two art critics and historians discuss “conflict of interest” in contemporary art criticism. Tyler Green, the host of the popular Modern Art Notes Podcast  and Catherine G. Wagley, a critic who regularly publishes with artnet News, the LA Review of Books, and Momus, frame the stakes and risks of a critic writing on contemporary – and even historical – figures in art, especially in light of the market’s increasingly firm grip on our discourse.

Art is a $57 billion market almost entirely unregulated by the government. Here is a remarkable summary of its recent performance as an asset class by two key power players: a fair and a bank. The summary tells a story of segmentation and distension of the market towards extreme ends of the scale: a tiny fraction of artists make up the vast bulk of sales, with just .017% of galleries responsible for 80% of total sales by value. On page 236, note how the text suddenly worries about the effect of dramatic wealth inequality on the market, if chiefly via ...
