Art making today is becoming an ever-expanding field. As opportunities for art practitioners grow, so does the need for new technological, economic, and aesthetic competencies beyond those of traditional art practice. Distinctions between plastic and performing arts dissolve with the challenges of new media. The field of art today includes policymakers, art curators, managers, and academicians, from traditional to New Media Art, and in the expanding domains of the Creative Industries.
