(I'm sending this out again in case it didn't arrive the 
first time!)

Hello Net-Working artists all,

I thought you may like to see something of the publicity 
for the exhibition events starting next week.  Although 
it states that the Launch on the 20 Nov and the 
live link up on 28 Nov includes discussions with Bristol 
artists, you are all welcome and if any of you are in the 
UK at those times please try and come along.  I also hope 
that you will log on to the chat forum on 26 Nov.

If you can make it to either the launch or link up please 
email:  Gill@watershed.co.uk

One more thing -
As there has been so many submissions and we are attempting 
to show as much work as possible, work will continue to be 
put onto the website throughout the exhibition time (on a 
first come first served basis). We will therefore announce 
to the press etc. that this virtual exhibition will remain 
online after the large screen events at the Watershed have 
finished.  Hope you are all OK with this.

With best wishes,

Dew.

You are invited to the launch of Net_Working, the 
largest exhibition of online art to date. With over 300 
works covering all forms of artistic practice on the web, 
it has a truly international feel with submissions coming 
from places as far flung as Latvia, Thailand, Brazil and 
California. The launch will include a presentation of some 
of the work on show and a discussion with local artists 
involved.

The exhibition has been curated by Dew Harrison (UWE) for 
the CHArt annual conference at the British Academy in 
London (Wed 28 - Thu 29 Nov), in collaboration with the
Watershed Media Centre. Initially a forum for the exchange 
of ideas, CHArt is now a society open to all who have an 
interest in the application of computers to the study of 
art and design. At the CHArt 2001 conference Drs Dew 
Harrison and Suzette Worden will be referring to this 
exhibition in order to discuss the relevance of the 
Internet as a medium for contemporary practice.

ONLINE DISCUSSION 
There will be an opportunity to chat online with Dew 
Harrison, contributing artists and attendees of the CHArt 
conference concerning the Net_Working exhibition on Mon 26 
Nov.  Please log on to the chat forum at: 
www.watershed.co.uk/Net_Working between 1900hrs - 2000hrs.

Net_Working is also being shown simultaneously at the 4th 
International Conference on Modern Technology and Processes 
for Art, Media and Design in Bangkok. A conference delegate 
from UWE will facilitate questions between other delegates 
and exhibiting artists at Watershed through a live link up 
(Wed 28 Nov 1000hrs - 1130hrs).

For further information and to keep up to date with the 
exhibition and discussion, view the Net_Working website
