Using resources gathered for the CRUMB website (http://www.newmedia.sunderland.ac.uk/crumb/) , this paper presents some key information and debates regarding the curating of new media art, both on the web and in conventional gallery spaces. Including quotes from Sarah Diamond, Steve Dietz, Peter Weibel, Benjamin Weil and Kathy Rae Huffman, the paper discusses issues of how artists are paid, how new media art is archived, how audiences might respond to new media art, and the aesthetics concerning the presentation of new media genres. Practical examples from the authors' experience of curating new media art are also given.
