Contribute to Another Year of Turbulence!

Dear Friends,

Now embarking on its 32nd year, New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. — an independent not-for-profit organization founded in New York City — continues to agitate the institutional art world through its trailblazing projects, including New American Radio (1987-1998), (1996-), Networked _ Performance (2004-), Networked _ Music _ Review (2007-), and Networked: a (networked _ book) about (networked _ art) (2009-).

Since 1981, NRPA has commissioned more than 500 works by more than 400 artists, many of them just beginning their careers. The archive spans a crucial 15-year period of exploration and innovation in digital, networked environments, ranging from hypertext to information visualization, blogs to social networks, and interactive dance/musical compositions to 3-D architecture.

Here’s what Régine Debatty and Timothy Murray have said about

“Turbulence because they’ve been consistently commissioning … and because they have a great blog called Networked_Performance that documents better (much better) than me the calls, essays and events that interest the whole new media art community.” Régine Debatty, we-make-money-not-art, 2006

“Turbulence … has developed into a natural archive of Internet art, housing the largest representation of American art produced as networked art. Indeed, no other on-line exhibition project has played such an influential and lasting role.” Timothy Murray, The Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art, 2011
