Visit a museum online, search a collection, or join a digital art market. Everything is possible on the internet. But what implications does the virtual presence of art images and collections have for the future of the ‘real’ museum experience? How do museums meet the public’s need for online content? How have digital platforms affected the role of the art curator?
Join our panel of speakers as they discuss the current developments that are taking place in the digital realm of museums. Dr Sarah Hyde, as chair, will lead the discussion as the speakers draw on their experiences at diverse institutions to grapple with these issues.
This debate is part of the ongoing Exhibiting Research series, organised by The Courtauld Institute of Art’s MA Programme Curating the Art Museum in collaboration with the Research Forum.
The debate will be followed by a reception and informal discussion.
