Through evaluation and study of a series of exhibition projects and initiatives that have reacted to shifting developments in web and digital technologies, we will learn about the evolution of curating for and in the digital age. This evolution shows how curators have designed exhibition models that serve as presentations not just for exhibiting (web)site-specific art, but also for creating and sharing it in a context that reacts to advances in web technology. In reality, with the proliferation of digital tools, these networks have created collaborative structures of creative development free from the physical and conceptual constraints of the institutionalised white cube. These digital platforms have become important for sharing and showing art, encouraging its production, allowing multiple forms of social participation and creating a democratised critique of the ideologies of the institutionalised art world.
