Artists M. River and T. Whid formed MTAA in 1996 and soon after began
to explore the internet as a medium for public art. The duo's
exhibition history includes group shows and screenings at The New
Museum of Contemporary Art, Postmasters Gallery and Artists Space, all
in New York City, and at The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles.
International exhibitions include the Seoul Net & Film Festival in
Korea and Videozone2 - The 2nd International Video Art Biennial in
Israel. http://www.mteww.com/

Panoplie.org : Web magazine for contemporary creation .
Composed by a collective of  artists from very different horizons, Web
and non Web,  the online magazine Panoplie.org aims to be a platform
for exchange between artists and Net surfers : Calls for
participation, performances, writings and follow-ups of artistic
projects and events are mixed to propose an original approach and
highlight problematics of art on the Net. In projects like "Why Rock"
(2005), "Habiter" (2006 ) and "Robots" (2007), Panoplie.org treats
universal themes in a contemporary way and makes them accessible to a
larger public. While collaborating with galleries and official art
institutions Panoplie.org helps to discover and instore new artistic
practices in the realm of traditional art.
