Canadian Art Magazine has a great interview with Caitlin Jones, new executive director of the Western Front, Vancouver’s artist-run centre. Caitlin brings a very interesting background to her hometown, after spending 10 years in New York where she worked at the curatorial department of the Guggenheim and lectured at places like PS1/MoMA. I was mostly interested on her thoughts about art and internet. “Given the role the web now plays in contemporary culture, my expectation is that any arts organization or curator should be including art made on, by or with the web as an integral part of its program.” she says.
