French media artist and theorist Fred Forest (born in 1933) is one of
the earliest pioneers of video and media art. His work with
interactive environments using computer and video elements, began as
early as 1968. At the forefront of interactive art and new media,
sociology, and institutional critique, his work frequently immaterial
and relational, raises questions about the nature and function of art
in a market-driven age of information. A retrospective of his work was
held at the Slought Foundation in Philadelphia in 2007. Forest has
exhibited and presented at institutions including, the Centre Georges
Pompidou, Espace Pierre Cardin, and the Musee d'Art Moderne de la
Ville de Paris. Currently artist in residence in New York at Residency
Unlimited supported by the Institut Francais, Fred Forest is
implementing a global interactive project at the Centre d'art Albi,
France and has several upcoming projects scheduled in the United
States August and September.

The List Visual Arts Center wishes to thank The Cultural Service of
the French Consulate in Boston, Residency Unlimited, and the
MIT-France Program for their generous assistance in making this talk
