This paper discusses five exhibitions curated by the author of what might be most broadly termed network-based art: Beyond Interface: net art and art on the net (1998), Art Entertainment Network (2000), Telematic Connections: The Virtual Embrace (2001), Open_Source_Art_Hack (2002), and Translocations (2003). While they took place after the invention of the http protocol, they represent an inflection point prior to the commodification of the technology of social media culture and explore formative practices by artists and institutions for current recensions of social media.

Keywords:   Social Media - Creative Practice, Social Media - Artists and Institutions, Exhibitions - Net Art, Exhibitions - Telematic Art, Net Art - Exhibitions, Network - based Art, Telematic Art
