High Tea with CRUMB: Rethinking Curating: Art After New Media

Eyebeam's UK-based curatorial research partner, CRUMB—the online resource for curators of media arts—have just launched three new books which collectively reference over 500 artists, curators, activists, writers, and theorists, including Eyebeam executive director Amanda McDonald Crowley, Eyebeam senior fellow Michael Mandiberg, Advisory Council members Christiane Paul and Steve Dietz, and Eyebeam alum Benjamin Weil. Come for a nice cup of tea and a celebration with Beryl Graham, Sarah Cook from CRUMB, and other book contributors. Refreshments will be served.
