The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) in partnership with the Philadelphia Museum of Art announces that registration for the National Digital Stewardship Residency Art Capstone: Preserving Media Art & Digital Image Information has opened. This symposium will provide a platform for the NDSR Art residents to discuss their experiences developing preservation and access strategies for GLAM assets, as well as offer perspectives from new media curators, time-based media artists, conservators, and preservationists.
To signal the end of the 2017-2018 National Digital Stewardship Residency for Art Information (NDSR Art), the NDSR Art cohort is hosting a one-day capstone event to discuss their year-long projects and offer new perspectives on preserving media art and digital art information. The capstone will examine the residents’ work at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the University of Pennsylvania Fisher Fine Arts Library, the Yale Center for British Art, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Their efforts aspire to contribute to the larger conversation surrounding arts-related preservation issues and to identify strategies to preserve unique digital assets and documentation. The event will expand the discussion and offer perspectives from practitioners in the field, including new media curators, time-based media artists, conservators, and preservationists.
This program is free and open to the public. Please consult the event schedule and register in advance.
