2017 marks the 20th anniversary of The Electronic Media Group at AIC. We would like to celebrate this milestone by taking stock of the past 20 years and celebrating the evolution of the field.

Peter Oleksik (MoMA) will chair a panel with Jill Sterret (SFMoMA), Paul Messier (Paul Messier Lens Media Lab, Yale), Glenn Wharton (NYU), Crystal Sanchez (EMG Committee Chair) and Christine Frohnert (EMG Committee Chair 2008-2011) about their experiences in this field, from its inception to the present. Which were the defining events in the last 20 years? What is striking when looking back to 1997, 2007, 2017? How has the field and the EMG developed over this time? Where should we be heading next?
