Lauren Cornell

1 September 2015

Lauren Cornell was in the vanguard of curators to recognise and promote post-internet art. From 2005–12, she was executive director of Rhizome, an arts organisation supporting contemporary art that engages with digital technologies and the internet, and in 2009 she co-curated the first New Museum Triennial – which included the work of pioneering new media artist Ryan Trecartin. And it was with Trecartin that she co-curated this year’s Triennial, ‘Surround Audience’, exploring how notions of selfhood have been transformed beyond recognition in our increasingly connected world.
