Art Journal is inaugurating the new position of web editor. Following interviews in February and a strong recommendation from the journal’s editorial board, Anne Collins Goodyear, the president of CAA’s Board of Directors, has appointed Gloria Sutton to the position. The web editor will be responsible for the content and presentation of material on the journal’s website, which complements materials in the printed publication with freestanding projects, primarily by artists.
The step occurs as CAA moves to a partnership with Taylor & Francis, to publish all three of the organization’s journals: The Art Bulletin, Art Journal, and caa.reviews. CAA members will select the journal(s) they would like to receive in print, and for the first time all three journals will available online, free to CAA members.
Of the new position, Sutton writes, “I am excited to help shape Art Journal’s online presence during this pivotal period and foster new intellectual exchanges among artists, scholars, critics, and curators of contemporary art.”
Sutton, who is assistant professor of contemporary art history and new media at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, will serve a three-year term as web editor. She is an art historian, curator, and author of many works on new media, including the book The Experience Machine: Stan VanDerBeek’s Movie-Drome and Expanded Cinema, to be published by MIT Press this fall. Sutton has curated exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art and the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, both in Los Angeles, California, and at Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria.
Also joining the Art Journal Editorial Board is the art historian Kate Mondloch, whose research focuses on the cultural, social, and aesthetic possibilities of new technologies. She is an associate professor of contemporary art and theory at the University of Oregon in Eugene, where she directs the certificate program in new media and culture. Mondloch is the author of Screens: Viewing Media Installation Art (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2010).
