NFT Now’s juror is digital mixed-media artist Anne Spalter, an academic pioneer who founded the original digital fine arts programs at Brown University and The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in the 1990s. She is noted for her large-scale installations and more recently AI and NFT art.  Ms. Spalter’s artist talks from 2020 and 2021 include the Techspressionist Artist Interview series, Whitehot Magazine podcast (listen on Spotify or Apple Music), MoCDA: 10 Questions in 10 MinutesISEA 2020CADAF OnlinePlayform InsightsSuperRare (Panel Conversation with 4 female artists)Blockchain Game Alliance, and Talking Collecting: New Media Art (with Unfold Brics).Ms. Spalter authored the internationally taught textbook, The Computer in the Visual Arts (Addison-Wesley, 1999). Her artistic process combines a consistent set of personal symbols with a hybrid arsenal of traditional mark-making methods and innovative digital tools. A new body of work, further developed at a Winter 2019 residency at MASS MoCA, combines artificial intelligence algorithms with oil paint and pastels.  She is currently creating work for the blockchain.Spalter is also noted for her large-scale public projects. MTA Arts commissioned Spalter to create a 52-screen digital art installation, New York Dreaming, which remained on view in one of its most crowded commuter hubs (Fulton Center) for just under a year. Spalter’s 2019 large-scale projects included a 47,000 square foot LED video work on the Hong Kong harbor.

Spalter’s work is in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, UK); the Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo, NY); the Rhode Island School of Design Museum (Providence, RI); The Museum of CryptoArt, and others. Alongside her studio practice, Spalter continues to lecture on digital art practice and theory.
