Historically, art museums have been physical spaces—typically, buildings—devoted to preserving artworks and making them visually available to people who walk through their doors. In the past few decades, technology has increasingly transformed museum spaces, affecting everything from how we care for and interpret objects to how we conceptualize exhibitions. The most profound shifts, perhaps, relate to audiences: unbounded by physical geography, digital technologies make it possible for museums to share experiences and information with people around the world. Yet what is being shared? Websites, apps, and even collections databases are spaces with physical, aesthetic, and cultural logics of their own. For users, they may function as surrogates for or complements to physical visits to a museum; in either case they provide new ways to present content. This panel will examine the unique possibilities of digital engagement, reflecting on existing and potential relationships between digital and physical space.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
