Session Description
Join us for a panel discussion of case studies drawn from diverse contexts in artists' archives. Panelists will briefly discuss challenges encountered while preserving artistic legacies digitally with broader access in mind and their solutions for implementation, followed by a moderated Q&A. We'll explore navigating the blurry line between art and archival materials, digital strategies for collections seeking to become more open, and integrating new technologies with future scholarship in mind.
