Wednesday, October 19, 2022
6 pm - 7 pm EDT
Over the last two years, the interest in collecting digital art has exploded, raising new questions for would-be collectors: Are there resources you need to store these works? How do you display artworks such as born-digital images, videos, websites, or even phone applications—to name just a few of the diverse forms these works can take? Like tangible media, art with digital components also requires unique care. Join us for this talk with Regina Harsanyi, one of the art world’s leading media art curators and conservators, to learn more about the exciting possibilities and challenges of collecting digital works.
