And from 2007
An Event that took place on Wednesday May 16, 2007—a tour of the art world of Second Life, projected on screen in New York City, Live at Location One— is now playing as a video in Second Life. The ArtWorld Report's managing editor ArtWorld Market's Real Life avatar spoke to RL collectors, curators, scholars, critics and dealers, who saw why this new medium has attracted so many artists. You can see the video right now at ArtWorld's Artropolis hut. Make sure your "Movies" button is on at the bottom of the SL viewer to watch the show on the FreeView screen.
It is also playing at DanCoyote Antonelli's Film Library, which is itself a site worth visiting—a parcel based multiplex theater. It's high up, so wear your antigrav—it's above unaided flying level.
