Shared Spaces: Social Media and Museum Structures Tues, Jan 14, 2014

This two-part symposium addresses the transformation of the museum in the age of social media. How does the presence of networked digital devices affect our experience of art in the museum’s galleries? In what ways do these historical shifts in the mediation of our perception reflect our beliefs about the function of the museum in our society? How can we understand the role that the numerous corporate digital platforms utilized by museums and their publics play in the presentation of art? We will explore the ways in which rapid public sharing from within the museum transforms our attitudes toward works of art and the spaces that house them, seeking to assess the stakes of this affective digital economy.
Distinguished scholars, curators, and artists discuss these questions in two sections—a panel of long-form presentations followed by a fast-paced series of short creative lecture propositions, followed by discussion among audience and participants.
Part I: Long-form Panel 6:30–7:45 pm Opening remarks and discussion moderated by Christiane Paul.
Participants: Jonathan Crary  Edward A. Shanken Donna De Salvo
Part II: Micro-lectures 8–9:30 pm Seven-minute presentations. Discussion (moderated by Christiane Paul and Gordon Hall).
Participants: Ben Thorp Brown Lauren Cornell João Enxuto and Erica Love  Sarah Hromack  Forrest Nash Mendi and Keith Obadike Will Pappenheimer  Brad Troemel
Shared Spaces is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art and Gordon Hall, Director of the Center for Experimental Lectures, and João Enxuto and Erica Love, Whitney Independent Study Program, 2012–2013.
