The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston (ICA Boston) is planning what it is calling the first major US exhibition devoted to the impact of Internet culture on visual art, featuring works that date back to the year Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. 

"Art in the Age of the Internet, 1989 to Today" will feature the work of 60 artists, collaborations and collectives, showing 70 works in all that cover painting, performance, photography, sculpture, video, web-based projects and virtual reality. The international, intergenerational list of artists to be featured includes Cao Fei, Pierre Huyghe, Laura Owens, Nam June Paik, Cindy Sherman and Anicka Yi.
