A Collection of Misfits: Time Based Media and the Museum
Carnegie Museum of Art - Pittsburgh, PA
Registration is now open for A Collection of Misfits: Time-Based Media and the Museum!
Presented by Carnegie Museum of Art, “A Collection of Misfits: Time-Based Media and the Museum” is a two-day symposium designed to encourage discourse about the practical and philosophical issues of building, maintaining, exhibiting, and preserving time-based media art collections. Bringing together professionals from all points along the media continuum—artists, archivists, curators, conservators, academics, and media archaeologists—this symposium addresses the opportunities and challenges of working with time-based media. From well-established museums to independent projects, from physical galleries to digital spaces, the symposium seeks out the sites where time-based media resides, with an eye toward innovative approaches in traditional and non-traditional venues alike.
The Misfits symposium is supported by a grant from the A.W. Mellon Foundation. To register and for more information, including a preliminary program, please visit our website. Please direct any questions to Philip Leers, senior research associate of Carnegie Museum of Art’s time-based media collection, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
