Art, Museums and Digital Cultures
The International Conference on Art, Museums and Digital Cultures will bring together different scientific and creative perspectives on the crossovers between information technologies and the arts. How are museums, curators and the artists themselves responding to the opportunities, but also the risks, of the so-called “digital transformation”?
Recognising the complexity and plurality of digital cultures, the conference will discuss recent or ongoing research works in different geographies and cultural contexts.
We invite scholars, independent researchers, digital media specialists, curators and artists to submit proposals for a 15-minute in-person or online presentation, focusing on one or more of the following topics:
- Digital Art and Museums: preservation, documentation and exhibition
- Historiography of New Media Art
- Digitisation of contemporary art collections and archives
- The presence of art museums on the web: institutional representations and narratives
- Networked artistic and curatorial practices
- Derivative artworks and digital cultures
- Virtual museums and online exhibitions
- Contemporary art and digital literacy
- Politics of online mediation
- Digital technologies, accessibility and inclusion in art museums
- Algorithms and artificial intelligence in artistic and museological projects
- Architecture for digital art – museums, galleries and alternative spaces
- Hybrid realities: artistic interfaces and spatial overlapping
- Art, science and technology: new objects, new relations and new issues
