Art History on the Move: Interpretation in the Age of Digital Technology

February 24, 2015

Sarah Ganz Blythe, Deputy Director for Exhibitions, Education, and Programs, RISD Museum

Dr Ganz Blythe will discuss the relationships between the display of art and its interpretation in general, and the use of technology at RISD Museum specifically. RISD has developed interpretive methods that invite audiences to engage deeply and expansively with works of art. This includes a new digital platform, Channel. Ganz Blythe will discuss the ways in which that project and others were conceived and executed, with a critical assessment of best practices for technology use to enhance the experience of original works of art.
