2013 marked the 20th anniversary of the New York Digital Salon. Started in 1993 to provide an annual venue for digital art in New York City, the salon continues to be an advocate for using digital tools and technology to create art. As digital art becomes an ever-growing part of the contemporary art landscape, our mission is constantly evolving. Our 20th anniversary exhibition was The American Algorists: Linear Sublime curated by Grant Taylor. Four pioneers of digital art exhibited their work – Manfred Mohr, Jean-Pierre Hébert, Roman Verostko and Mark Wilson. Moving forward, we will keep the New York Digital Salon Touring Program alive, through exhibitions, events and public lectures in the United States and abroad. To date, the New York Digital Salon has been to Canada, Canary Islands, China, England, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Portugal and Spain. We now see a new generation of artists who are growing up digitally literate. Their creative work will help define the future of contemporary art.
