The InterAccess Current (IA Current) program supports the professional development of emerging curators and artists interested in new media and electronic practices. Each year, InterAccess selects an emerging curator, who works closely with InterAccess staff to conceptualize and execute an exhibition of works by emerging artists. “Current” refers to the now, but it is also an energetic charge that causes light, heat, and all manner of electronic life—an apt metaphor for emergent creative practices within the ever-expanding field of new media.
