Pita Arreola-Burns & Elliott Burns will discuss post Internet curation and Off Site Project, the online curatorial platform they founded 2017.
Originally coined in 2006 by Marisa Olson, the term Post Internet Art broadly characterises digital and non-digital art practices that are informed by internet aesthetics and socio-cultural effects. This presentation aims to identify similar shifts that have been prototyped in the emergent arena of online curatorial practice. Drawing on their own curatorial vehicle - Off Site Project - and close involvement with a global network of contemporaries, Pita Arreola-Burns and Elliott Burns will identify certain trends and behaviours of the Web 2.0 era, before speculating on the new trajectories implied by Web 3.0 curation.
Off Site Project is an online curatorial platform founded by Pita Arreola-Burns and Elliott Burns in 2017. Via homepage exhibitions, downloadable ZIP shows and a residency situated in Google Maps it supports emerging new media artists and addresses pressing techno-sociological topics.  Through partnerships, Off Site Project has created exhibitions and projects for anonymous gallery, the Austrian Cultural Forum London, distant.gallery, Electric Artefacts, INDUSTRA, isthisit? and the Summer Works Festival. On the subject of online art ecosystems, they have been invited to speak at Central Saints Martins, Centro de Cultura Digital, the CSNI, the DRHA conference, Goldsmiths, Modern Art Oxford, the RCA, Somerset House Studios, Tate Exchange, the UCL Multimedia Anthropology Lab, the University of Denver and the Whitworth Gallery.   https://www.offsiteproject.org/

Previously, she has held positions with Furtherfield Gallery and had a career in Cultural PR & Communications. 
Elliott Burns is a Lecturer in Digital Cultures at Central Saint Martins. Recently he has coordinated an R&D project for the British Council exploring visions for majority world orientated UI online collection design and with I-AM has investigated compound disadvantages in the CCI sector, informing the creation of the WeTransfer Supporting Act Foundation.
