- Interactive pieces and online storytelling
- GIF-based shows, collecting these images native to online exchange. A Bill Miller’s GIF free for all speaks to the format’s democratic, ubiquituous nature, mirroring the chaos and idealism of the early Web. The online gallery ANI GIF had solo shows of gif works from 2011 to 2014 or so.
- Shows that have the Web itself as its subject. The wonderful Not Found Exhibition (archived here) could only exist as an online show. My own exhibition, NetVVorth, had online content and exchange as its subject, asking digital artists to make counterfeit works.
- One piece per screen: Bodyholes http://newscenario.
- A drop down to load each work: http://www.mon3y.us/
- A simple grid of works executed simply and cleanly (such as Jan Leegte’s homepage) http://www.leegte.
- A deadline for agreeing to be in the show
- A deadline for when the work needs to be ready. Make this about a week before you actually need it. Someone will definitely send you work a week late.
- Acceptable formats and max sizes for work. Remind in subsequent emails. Make sure this is in line with your hosting strategy.
