Lindsay Howard is a distinguished American curator, writer, and new media scholar based in New York City whose work explores how the internet is shaping art and culture.
Her exhibitions focus on social dynamics and aesthetics within online communities, as well as transparency, hacktivism, and collaborations between artists and technologists
She founded 319 Scholes’ exhibition program, featuring Petra Cortright, Ryan Trecartin, Eva & Franco Mattes, Hannah Perry, Bunny Rogers, and many other notable Post-Internet artists. She brought digital art communities like F.A.T. Lab, Ryder Ripps’ Dump.fm, and feminist collective Deep Lab into physical exhibitions. She curated Phillips’ first digital art auctions, which established pieces like art websites and viral YouTube videos as fine art and set public pricing records. She produced a New Museum and Nokia Bell Labs residency, pairing artists with Nobel-prize winning scientists and engineers, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) program.
Howard serves on the board of Rhizome, an organization that champions born-digital art and culture. In 2021, Fortune recognized her as one of the top 50 influencers in the NFT space.
While at Eyebeam, she researched mutual-aid strategies with her fellowship collaborator Ares Geovanos.
