fineArt forum
an e-zine for the e-arts


fineArt forum was launched in May 1987 as an e-mail newsletter and continues in that format as a monthly digest. fineArt forum is the pioneer online news service dedicated to the provision of news and information for the global arts and technology community.

In 2002, fAf formed a strategic alliance with Leonardo Electronic Almanac. Founded in 1964, Leonardo is the leading international journal for the application of contemporary science & technology to the arts and music. It is a peer-reviewed journal published under the auspices of MIT Press (USA).

This alliance will maximise both fAf & LEA's resources for exploring the relationship between art, science, and technology. It will provide creative people involved in the "three cultures" with news, information and critical content to assist and enable their work.

fineArt forum is the longest running arts magazine on the Internet and its live web site, is viewed by 84,000 visitors annually. fAfs monthly e-mail digest has approximately 1,500 base subscribers and we estimate that about 2500 people read the fineArt forum e-mail digest on a regular basis.

fAf's primary mission is to inform the new media arts and technology community worldwide of the latest events, developments and opportunities in this field.

Known subscribers include: the John Paul Getty Foundation; Christies Auction House; Xerox PARC (who redistribute internally); the Department of Communication and the Arts; art and media faculties of Universities and TAFE (Community) colleges and: practising artists, musicians, performers, designers, theorists, writers and other new media professionals. Many scientists, including those who work in areas of computational metamedia, subscribe to and read fineArt forum.

The project has been assisted by the Commonwealth Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. (

fAf is also supported by: The Communication Design Program, Academy of the Arts, Queensland University of Technology, Mississippi State University, The International Society for Art, Science and Technology ­ (ISAST), ACM Siggraph Singapore Chapter (
