I guess the real challenge here is how to collect and curate digital art with the imprimatur of a Legitimate Musuem. Video art and conceptual art have similar display challenges, it’s hard to make them compelling in a gallery. I think it’s a mistake to relocate online art to a museum; what works is art designed for the museum space. For the rest we need some other institution to help us curate and critique what’s going on in the Internet.
