Lindsay Howard is an independent curator who has spent the last decade exploring networked art and culture. She founded 319 Scholes’ exhibition program, featuring Petra Cortright, Ryan Trecartin, Eva & Franco Mattes, Hannah Perry, Bunny Rogers,and many other notable Post-Internet artists. She brought digital art communities like F.A.T. Lab, Ryder Ripps’ Dump.fm, and feminist collective Deep Lab into physical exhibitions. She curated Phillips’ first digital art auctions, which established pieces like art websites and viral YouTube videos as fine art and set public pricing records. She produced a New Museum and Nokia Bell Labs residency, pairing artists with Nobel-prize winning scientists and engineers, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) program.
She has served on the selection committee for Creative Capital’s Emerging Fields award and been on juries for Mozilla Foundation, The Strange Foundation, and Eyebeam. Most recently, she directed the Creators-in-Residence program at the crowdfunding site Kickstarter and is curating an ongoing site-specific exhibition, The Situation Room, at the Museum of the Moving Image. While at Eyebeam, she’ll be researching mutual-aid strategies with her fellowship collaborator Ares Geovanos.
